image of Financial production, flows and stocks in the system of national accounts

This Handbook aims to provide practical guidance on the calculation and allocation of the production of various types of financial services and issues related to the compilation of the financial account and balance sheets by institutional sector in the context of from-whom-to-whom relationships. The Handbook complements the 2008 SNA and related manuals, handbooks and guides. The concepts are described and defined in line with the 2008 SNA. Where appropriate, illustrative worked examples with step-by-step guidance are provided in the Handbook to give compilers and users a better picture of how to apply and interpret the various concepts. The Handbook is useful for staff working in national statistical offices, national central banks, international organizations and other institutions engaged in collecting, compiling and disseminating national accounts data, specifically on the financial corporations sector and financial account, and for users requiring a better understanding of such data.



Financial production and income

This chapter describes the nature of financial services produced by enterprises in the financial corporations sector and how the output of these services is calculated. An overview of the source data to calculate the output is provided in the chapter. In many instances, the source data to compute the output of financial services can be obtained from the returns of the financial institutions to the relevant government agency, such as the central bank, or from surveys conducted by the compiling agency or other government agencies responsible for the financial sector. Chapter 7 of the Handbook provides a more detailed description of how to collect the source data. This chapter will also provide an overview of social security schemes, as well as the methods and data sources which are used to calculate the output and other transactions associated with these schemes. It will also describe the supplementary table which was introduced in the 2008 SNA to show the extent of pension schemes included in, and excluded from, the 2008 SNA sequence of accounts and non-core accounts.
