1) The method used to calculate financial instruments AF.512 (unlisted shares) and AF.519 (other equity) was revised simultaneously with the compilation of financial accounts for 2017 Q4. The updated method for compiling the statistics on these financial instruments uses new data sources. The previous calculation of AF.519 using registered capital at nominal value has changed to the calculation of own capital at book value (as in AF.512 and in conformity with ESA 2010). For AF.512, the effect of estimates for small corporations and missing data has been removed. At the same time, the calculation of the division of liabilities among holder sectors has been refined for both instruments. The quarterly financial accounts data for 2016 Q1–2017 Q3 were revised using the above calculation method. The data for 2017 Q4 were compiled using the revised method. The difference between the original and updated values of both financial instruments for 2016 Q1, including counterparties, has been increased by the value of the item of other changes in assets for this quarter. A revision of the data for 2004 Q1–2015 Q4 is planned for 2020.
The higher value of AF.519 in the general government sector was also due to a change in the method for reporting the government’s shares in international development banks, where financial assets and liabilities were reduced by the outstanding amount of capital. Only paid-up capital is thus reported. The time series reflects this change from 2014 onwards. The change implements an ECB recommendation and is in accordance with ESA2010 and the methodology contained in the updated version of Eurostat’s Government Deficit and Debt Manual.
