14 November 2012: Amended budget bill for 2012

This page is an archive, only available in English and French.

The amended budget bill (PLFR) for 2012 approved by the Council of Ministers on November 14, 2012 projects a central government budget deficit at €86.1bn, against €83.6bn in the initial budget bill (LFI) for 2013 of September 28, 2012. This is due to the recapitalization of Dexia up to €2.6Bn.


The State financing requirement therefore is up at €185.3bn (€182.8bn previously). Among financing sources, other cash resources are revised upwards at €11.7bn, or a net inflow of cash of +1.7bn due to the issuance premiums recorded since September 28, while deposits from Treasury correspondents are expected in increase at €3.2bn, or an improvement of €0.8bn. 


All in all, the net change of BTF is maintained at - €10bn and the amount of medium- and long-term issuances net of buybacks (BTANs and OATs) will remain unchanged at €178bn.
