Explanatory Notes - Monetary financial institutions in the UK: Total income and expenditure (domestic and non-resident business)

Overview

Table B3.1 contains selected income and expenditure data of Monetary Financial Institutions (MFIs) in the UK that feed into the National Accounts. It comprises data series on net interest receivable, net charges, fees and commissions receivable, net dividends received and other income less expenditure.  The interest receivable and payable data are broken down into money market instruments, loans and advances, deposits, repos and reverse repos and bonds.  Some figures are explicitly stated to only include business of the UK resident entity in non-resident markets.  All other figures include business in both domestic and non-resident markets.

The Interactive Database contains further detail on MFIs in the UK: Total income and expenditure (domestic and non-resident business) and selected income and expenditure data of MFIs in the UK receivable from and payable to non-residents comprising data series on commissions and fees and investment income.  Investment income data are broken down into Direct income (branches’ profits and losses and ‘Other’), Portfolio income and ‘Other’ income.  Net data are shown for all items except Portfolio investment and Total income.

Availability

Data are available quarterly from 1998 Q1. Publication of data will usually occur on the 21st working day of the month in Table B3.1 in Bankstats (Monetary and Financial Statistics) with the most recent quarter available in the publication for the third month after the end of the quarter.

Following the transition of building societies statistical reporting from the FSA to the Bank of England on 1st January 2008, all figures in Table B3.1 include building society data from 2008 Q1 data onwards.

Sources

Data up until end 2003 are taken from the Form A3.  Data from 2004 Q1 are from the Form PL which replaced Forms A3 and BP.  Annual data were reported by all UK-resident banks up to 2006. There is now around 98 per cent coverage from institutions reporting on an annual basis, based on gross assets/liabilities as reported quarterly on Form BT. Coverage from institutions reporting on a quarterly basis is around 95 per cent, with estimates derived for the other banks.

Building society data reported on Form PL are included from 2008 Q1, with coverage similar to that for banks. Estimates are derived for other building societies.

Revisions

All data are subject to revision if and when new information becomes available.  For more information on revisions practices see the Explanatory Note on revisions.
