Forecast Financial Statements
These forecasts have been prepared in accordance with the Public Finance Act 1989.
They are based on the accounting policies and assumptions that follow. As with all such assumptions, there is a degree of uncertainty surrounding them. This uncertainty increases as the forecast horizon extends.
The forecasts have been prepared in accordance with the Statement of Responsibility and reflect the judgements and information known at the time they were prepared. They reflect all government decisions and circumstances communicated to 11 October 2011.
The key assumptions that underpin the preparation of the Forecast Financial Statements are outlined on pages 33 to 36.
