THE CNB TEN-DAY BALANCE SHEET - commentary

The CNB ten-day balance sheet is compiled in accordance with Article 48 of Act No. 6/1993 Coll., on the Czech National Bank, as of the 10th and 20th day of each month and as of the end of each month. The balance sheet is published on pre-announced dates – normally on the 3rd business day after the end of the first and second 10-day periods of the month, on the 4th business day after the end of the current month and usually eight business days after the end of the year.

The data published in the CNB ten-day balance sheet contain the operations recorded by the end of the business day immediately preceding the publication date, and thus express the current stock of assets and liabilities of the CNB as of the publication date. As the CNB’s accounting period is the calendar year and the settlement of all closing operations exceeds a period of eight business days, the ten-day balance sheet as of the end of the year does not contain all the accounting operations of the given year as they are subsequently recorded in the annual accounts. A column has therefore been added to the archive of ten-day balance sheets containing data from the financial statements according to the audited stocks since 2009, since when the published ten-day balance sheet has had the same structure as the financial statements.
