The monthly bulletin for central government finances published as Power BI reports has been renamed and from January 2022, it is known as Monthly review for central government finances. As before, the publication contains reports on the implementation of the Budget, and state income and expenses, assets, liabilities and cash flow. The information is based on the accounting data supplied by accounting units and off-budget entities and maintained by the Finnish Government Shared Services Centre for Finance and HR in the Kieku system and from which the information is made available to consolidated accounting. The concepts of national accounts that are used by Statistics Finland in its reports are not used.
The review is gradually renewed
The reform expands the information resource to create a service that is more accessible and easier to use. The sub-pages of the monthly review present the budget and central government finances as separate sets of reports. Changes have been made in the contents of the funds statement for central government finances and balance of central government finances, which are presented in accordance with a more detailed elimination procedure. Time series that are produced in connection with the review and data for Statistics Finland’s time series database Astika based on both the cash flow analysis are published in the section Central government. In addition, in the section Analysis of monthly review for central government finances, information on the most important events in central government finances is published a few times a year.
