International trade; Imports and exports of services by country, quarter


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 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 June 11, 2020:
The figures of the 4th quarter 2019 and year 2019 are adjusted and are revised provisional.

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.

Changes as of October 3, 2018:
The annual figures for 2014 and 2015 have been revised in the context of the revision policy of National accounts and The Bank of the Netherlands (DNB).

Changes as of december 14, 2017:
Because of revisions in the source material and methodological improvements, the figures for the years 2014-2017 overhauled.

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