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. In the 2014-2020 time series table 2020 is model-based using response data and auxiliary data from the tax authorities. The first quarter of 2021 has temporarily been added to the old 2014-2020 table awaiting the publication of the new table. With the release of the new table starting in 2020, the first quarter 2021 is no longer published in the old time 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 October 15, 2021:
The 2019 figures are final and the provisional 2020 figures are adjusted.
The first quarter of 2021 is no longer model-based available in the old time series because of the release of the new table starting in 2020.
See table International trade; "Imports and exports of services by country, quarter" in chapter 3.

Changes as of June 25, 2021:
From the first quarter of 2020, the figures of this statistic have been influenced by COVID-19 and this is reflected in some services. The provisional figures of the fourth quarter of 2020 are adjusted and the provisional figures of the first quarter of year 2021 are added.

When will new figures be published?
The 2020 figures will become final in autumn 2022.
