Balances between inward and outward transactions, providing a net flow of transactions between UK residents and the rest of the world and reports on how that flow is funded.

The balance of payments summarises transactions between residents of a country and non-residents during a period. The Pink Book summarises the economic transactions of the UK with the rest of the world over time. It can be broken into three components: the current account, the capital account and the financial account.

The current account shows the flows of goods and services that comprise international trade, the cross-border income flows associated with the international ownership of financial assets, and current transfers between residents and non-residents. The sum of the balances on these accounts is known as the current account balance.

The capital account consists of capital transfers and the acquisition or disposal of non-produced, non-financial assets.

The sum of the current account balance and capital account balance indicates whether the economy is a net lender to the rest of the world (in surplus) or a net borrower from the rest of the world (in deficit).

The financial account shows the net acquisition or net incurrence of financial assets and liabilities, and is the counterpart to the current account and capital account. It records how the country is financing its borrowing from, or lending to, the rest of the world.

The international investment position (IIP) records the stock position of these financial investments. It shows at the end of the period the value of the stock of financial assets of residents of an economy that are claims on nonresidents and the value of the stock of financial liabilities of residents of an economy to non-residents. The difference between the assets and liabilities in the IIP represents either a net claim on, or a net liability to, the rest of the world.

This bulletin gives an analytical overview of the main components of the current account, focusing on the components of primary income and trade. There is also geography analysis looking at the rate of return on investments in different continents. We also have an additional geography map, which showcases the published international investment position map with the UK’s largest trading partners. There is analysis on the financial account and how the UK has financed its current account deficit before and after the economic downturn. Finally, there is analysis on the IIP, which breaks down the elements that make up the IIP.

Balances between inward and outward transactions, providing a net flow of transactions between UK residents and the rest of the world and reports on how that flow is funded.

The balance of payments measures the economic transactions of the UK with the rest of the world. These transactions can be broken down into three main accounts: the current account, the capital account and the financial account.

The current account shows the flows of goods and services that comprise international trade, the cross-border income flows associated with the international ownership of financial assets, and current transfers between UK residents and non-residents. The sum of the balances on these accounts is known as the current account balance. The current account balance indicates whether the economy is a net lender to the rest of the world (surplus) or net borrower from the rest of the world (deficit).

The financial account shows net acquisition and net incurrence of financial assets and liabilities and is the counterpart to the current account. If a country is running a current account deficit, the financial account records how the country is financing its borrowing from the rest of the world. The international investment position (IIP) records the stock position of these financial flows. It shows at the end of the period the value of the stock of financial assets of residents of an economy that are claims on non-residents and the liabilities of residents of an economy to non-residents. The difference between the assets and liabilities is the net position in the IIP and represents either a net claim on, or a net liability to the rest of the world.

This commentary gives an analytical overview of the main components of the current account. It focuses mainly on the primary income and trade balances as these were the primary factors behind the widening in the current account deficit. There is also further analysis on the IIP, which looks into the impact of the depreciation of sterling during 2016.

The balance of payments is one of the UK’s key economic statistical series. It measures the economic transactions between UK residents and the rest of the world. It also draws a series of balances between inward and outward transactions, provides a net flow of transactions between UK residents and the rest of the world and reports how that flow is funded. Economic transactions include:
  • exports and imports of goods, such as oil, agricultural products, other raw materials, machinery and transport equipment, computers, white goods and clothing
  • exports and imports of services such as international transport, travel, financial and business services
  • income flows, such as dividends and interest earned by foreigners on investments in the UK and by UK residents investing abroad
  • financial flows, such as direct investment, investment in shares, debt securities, loans and deposits
  • transfers, which are offsetting entries to any one-sided transactions listed above, such as foreign aid and contributions to EU budget.

Closely related to the balance of payments is the international investment position series of statistics. The international investment position measures the levels of financial investment with the rest of the world, inward and outward.
