Table description


This table contains information on Dutch imports, exports and net balance of services broken down by various service types and countries (groups) provided or purchased by companies and persons domiciled in the Netherlands.

An entirely renewed classification of services which are used by all EU countries from 2014 onwards is based on the “Balance of Payments Manual 6” (BPM6).

Data available from: 2014

Status of the figures:
As of 2020, a redesign of the International trade in services has taken place.
To make time series and mutual comparison possible, 2020 will be published in 2 ways.
2020 in the old way appears in this table and is model-based using response data and auxiliary data from the tax authorities. The new table is expected to be published in mid-May 2021 and will include 2020 and beyond according to the new series.

As of 2017 is the publication and revision policy of international trade in services review.
The figures on the Dutch international trade in services are available on quarterly and annual basis. Provisional quarterly figures are one quarter after the end of the reporting period available. With the publication of a new quarter, also the figures for the previous quarter and if applicable the other previous quarters of the year are adjusted on the basis of new source material (provisional figures). At the time of a year four quarters are available quarterly on the basis of these four figures a year calculation is made. This year calculation is available in the autumn of the following year. The year calculation is then adjusted again the following year, this time final. Also the quarterly figures of the year reviewed.

Changes as of September 17, 2020:
The figures of 2018 and 2019 are final. The revised provisional figures of the first quarter of 2020 and the provisional figures of the second quarter of 2020 are added.
The 2018 figures have been adjusted due to the availability of additional information.


Changes as of October 7, 2019:
The figures for 2017 are revised due to a compilation error. Correcting this error has a small effect on the imputations for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarter of 2017 so the all quarters for 2017 are revised.

When will new figures be published?
The first figures become available approximately 12 weeks after the reporting period.
