As from this edition of the Statistical Bulletin, and to adapt the publication to the changes made to official interest rates by Ministerial Order ETD/699/2020, the information provided in Table 19.1 has been altered. Previous columns 7, 8 and 9, which had already ceased to be considered as official interest rates, have been removed. The 12-month MIBOR moves to column 10. The official interest rates hitherto in columns 2 to 6 move to columns 5 to 9. Finally, columns 1 to 4 show the new official reference rates introduced by the above-mentioned Order.

April 2020

As from the current edition of the Statistical Bulletin, the structure of Tables 4.3, 4.53 and 4.83 has been changed in order to include the doubtful loans ratio. For this purpose, a column has been added in which the amount of doubtful loans is expressed as a percentage of total lending to other resident sectors.

October 2019

As from the update of the September 2019 data, the information previously given on banknotes and coins in tables 7.16 and 7.17 has been extended and renumbered. Specifically, table 7.16 adds information in respect of liabilities of euro banknotes assigned to the Banco de España and on banknotes distributed less banknotes withdrawn in the period (columns 1 and 3, respectively). Tables 7.17 and 7.18 are added with information on euro banknotes distributed and withdrawn in the period, respectively. Finally, table 7.17 is renumbered as table 7.19.

September 2019

As from 2 October 2019, table be4.28 will be disseminated in a single Excel file and a single CSV file. Dissemination in several Excel or CSV files compressed in a single ZIP file will be discontinued.

June 2019

Since the entry into force of Regulation (EU) 2017/1131 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2017 on money market funds and of CNMV Circular 1/2019 of 28 March on categories of collective investment schemes according to their investment objective, most money market funds (MMFs) have changed their investment policy to that of a short-term euro fixed-income investment fund (IF) or have merged with other non-monetary IFs.

In order to preserve the confidentiality of the data on the MMFs that still exist, the decision has been taken to cease publishing Tables 8.A, 8.F, 8.91 and 8.92 of the Statistical Bulletin, from this edition onwards.

March 2019

Data from supervisory returns. Credit institutions and credit financial intermediaries

For the first time the January 2019 figures reflect the application of IFRS 16. This standard amends the accounting criteria for operating leases. As a result,the lessee includes in assets (as a fixed asset) and liabilities the right to use the good subject to contract. This change in criterion has meant a significant relative increase in the property caption in January 2019.

December 2018

Lending by purpose, tables 4.13, 4.14 and 4.17

As from the current edition of the Statistical Bulletin the structure of Tables 4.13, 4.14 and 4.17 has been changed to provide information on consumer lending and the related non-performing loans. For this purpose a column for consumer lending has been added and the column “Other”, which until now included all consumer loans other than loans for consumer durables, has been modified. The changes have been made with retroactive effect.
