Analysis of National Tax Revenue – March 2019

April 11, 2019

In the third month of the year, national public sector revenues grew by 37.3% in nominal terms compared to the same period of the previous year but fell by 10.5% in real terms. Similar behavior was observed in the first quarter of the year.

This performance also entails a decline compared to previous months and reaffirms that government revenues are strongly linked to the level of economic activity, as shown by the VAT DGI, which fell 7.3%.

Income Tax contracted by 18.5%, partly due to the deferral of some maturities. The significant growth in Export Duties allowed mitigating the fall in the most important taxes of the national tax structure (VAT, Income Tax and Social Security Contributions).
