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.

  • Implementation of Riksdag decision on central government budget for 2019

    Following the Riksdag’s adoption of the joint reservation from the Moderate Party and the Christian Democrats, the Riksdag has decided on appropriations in the 27 expenditure areas. This means that the Riksdag has concluded its processing of the central government budget for 2019. The caretaker government will now implement the decisions taken by the Riksdag.

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.

  • The Budget for 2019 in five minutes

    As no new government has taken office, the caretaker government presented the Budget Bill for 2019 to the Riksdag on 15 November. Because of the limited powers of a caretaker government, the budget submitted is based on previous Riksdag decisions and can be adjusted when a new government is formed.

  • 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 budget also contains a proposal, supported by broad consensus in the Riksdag, that cannot be implemented in the ongoing fiscal year. This is a proposal to reduce the difference in taxation between pensioners and wage earners that was previously circulated for comment.

  • Ministry of Employment investments in the 2018 spring budget

    Everyone who can work should work. More people need to learn Swedish faster and more people who need an education to find work should take the initiative to study. In its 2018 spring amending budget, the Government is therefore investing in strengthening paths to work for more people. The Government is also providing more resources for preventive efforts against sexual harassment in working life, regional safety representatives and summer jobs for more young people.
