Central government budget
An important part of the Government’s work to realise its policies is to draw up proposals on the central government budget. The proposals are submitted to the Riksdag in the spring and autumn.
The Riksdag’s processing of the budget for 2019
On 12 December, the Riksdag adopted the central government expenditure framework for 2019, as well as tax and fee amendments. The framework decision is the basis for the Riksdag’s continued processing in the committees.
Caretaker government presents Budget Bill for 2019
Because no new government has taken office, the caretaker government is presenting the Budget Bill for 2019 to the Riksdag today. A caretaker government has limited powers. The budget being presented is based on previous decisions by the Riksdag and leaves scope for adjustments when a new government is formed.
The Swedish fiscal policy framework
The fiscal policy framework is an instrument to ensure that fiscal policy is sustainable and transparent in the long term.
Certain principles are regulated by law, while others are based on the practice that has gradually developed since the 1990s.
In June 2016, a cross-party agreement was concluded on changes to the fiscal policy framework. In April 2018, the Government presented a written communication to the Riksdag containing a cohesive description of the framework.
