Reclassification of housing associations to public sector - implementation date to be confirmed
In October 2015, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) announced a decision to reclassify “Private registered providers” of social housing in England (PRPs) to the Public Non-Financial Corporations sub-sector. Reporters should, however, note that the implementation of this change will not be effective in National Accounts, and therefore statistical returns, until there is a further announcement. The publication of a further statistical notice will outline when this change should be implemented.
For more information on the planned changes, please see the ONS website.
If you have any queries relating to these changes, please contact the Money and Credit Group on +44 (0) 207 601 5361 or email SRDD_MS@bankofengland.co.uk.
