Latest actual data: 2012
Notes: General government variables exclude the effects of temporary effect of financial interventions.
Fiscal assumptions: Fiscal projections are based on the U.K. Treasury’s 2013 Budget, published in March 2013. However, on the revenue side, the authorities’ projections are adjusted for differences between IMF staff forecasts of macroeconomic variables (such as GDP growth) and the forecasts of these variables assumed in the authorities’ fiscal projections. In addition, IMF staff projections exclude the temporary effects of financial sector interventions and the effect on public sector net investment during 2012–13 of transferring assets from the Royal Mail Pension Plan to the public sector. Real government consumption and investment are part of the real GDP path, which, according to the IMF staff, may or may not be the same as projected by the U.K. Office for Budget Responsibility. Transfers of profits from the Bank of England’s Asset Purchases Facility affect general government  net interest payments. The timing of these payments can create differences between fiscal year primary balances published by the authorities and calendar year balances shown in the WEO.
