Balance of payments, current account, quarterly data - % of GDP [teibp051]

Documentation on provider website

The Balance of Payments is the statistical statement that systematically summarises transactions between residents and non-residents. It consists of the goods and services account, the primary income account, the secondary income account, the capital account and the financial account (BPM6 – 2.12) The current account is an important grouping of accounts within the Balance of Payments. The current account balance shows the difference between the sum of exports and income receivable and the sum of imports and income payable (exports and imports refer to both goods and services, while income refers to both primary and secondary income). The value of current account balance equals the saving-investment gap for the economy. The balance of current account is thus related to understanding domestic transactions (BPM6 – 2.15). Data are expressed in million euros. Data are presented in raw form. Source of euro area data: European Central Bank (ECB).
