The report published today regarding the local government budget outturn in the 1st semester of 2018 continues a series of semiannual publications that the Portuguese Public Finance Council (CFP) started last April.
The data for 2017 here presented was updated because some municipalities already reported their accounts in the Local Authorities Integrated Information System (SIIAL in Portuguese).
All the references in the document are indicative and the responsibility for checking compliance with the rules are presented in Table 9 in the report no. 03/2018 (only available in Portuguese).
The exercise is presented in cash optics. The limit to the municipal debt and the accounts payable are also assessed in the report.
