Government; debt guarantees, off-balance PPP, non-performing loans

Statistics Netherlands recorded outstanding amounts in the context of backstop arrangements with municipalities in previous publications erroneously as debt guarantees to municipalities. This has been corrected, consequently guarantees to public non-financial corporations 2010-2018 are lowered. Moreover, Statistic Netherlands erroneously classified guarantees from local governments to some institutions belonging to the government sector as debt guarantees to other institutions. As a consequence of these corrections, guarantees to other institutions are lower and guarantees to public non-financial corporations are higher. Finally, outstanding amounts of some guarantees are corrected because Statistics Netherlands erroneously registered guarantee ceilings instead of provided guarantees.
