The balance of payments covers transactions that are carried out between economic units belonging to the national economy (resident in Finland) and economic units belonging to another country (resident abroad).

The compilation of the statistics is based on the International Monetary Fund's recommendation BPM6 (Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual).
