Financial accounts and financial balance sheets

The tables that may be downloaded from the links below provide an overview of the national financial accounts and financial balance sheets of the various sectors of the economy and their relations with the rest of the world.
Two versions - detailed and simplified - are available, depending on the granularity of instrument and financial sector nomenclatures.
Related data are updated twice a year (accordingly to National Financial Accounts methodology). Definitive accounts for year N-3 are available in October of year N (e.g. 2017 definitive accounts are available in October 2020).

National Financial Accounts are in line with benchmark ‘base 2014’ and are available since 1995. Data since 1977 are available here but are in line with previous benchmark ‘base 2000’.

In addition, in accordance with the roadmap of the Committee on Monetary, Financial and Balance of Payments Statistics (CMFB) adopted in June 2014, in order to harmonise the reports on the quality of the data used to draw up the financial accounts, the Banque de France publishes its quality assessment*, according to the document detailing the principles for collecting and disseminating financial account statistics established in the joint European framework. The document is available in English only and can be viewed via the link below.

*This publication is produced by the Banque de France and aims to promote the transparency of production processes, within the general framework adopted by the CMFB on the quality of statistical data. Eurostat and the European Central Bank cannot be held liable for its content.
