The balance of payments of the Republic of Croatia is a systematic overview of the value of economic transactions executed between Croatian residents and non-residents within a particular time period. It is compiled in accordance with the methodology recommended by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and adopted by the EU. Accordingly, the tables in this section present the data for the period from the year 2000 onwards, according to the methodology described in the sixth (6th) edition of the IMF's Balance of Payments Manual (BPM6).
The balance of payments of the Republic of Croatia is compiled and published on a quarterly basis, three months after the end of the reporting quarter. With the first release, the data obtain the preliminary status and are expected to be revised during the subsequent releases as additional information becomes available. Moreover, the past data are always subject to revisions due to occasional corrections on the side of the data sources as well as due to the regular updating of the reporting samples.
