Description

Statistics Austria publishes data on revenue from taxes and social contributions in Austria twice a year. Data is compiled according to the European System of National Accounts (ESA 2010). Statistics Austria also publishes a detailed breakdown of revenue of general government and the EU by tax and social contribution categories and by collecting sector. This detailed data is the basis for the annual data transmission to Eurostat, OECD and IMF, according to the respective classifications. The published tables generally include the revenues of general government (sector S.13) as well as those of the EU (sector S.212 – import and customs duties, contributions of financial institutions to the Single Resolution Funds). Data sources are the closed accounts of central, regional and local governments, social insurance funds and extra-budgetary units that are classified within the general government sector.
