Cash surplus/deficit (current LCU)

The value for Cash surplus/deficit (current LCU) in Iran was 16,229,900,000,000.00 as of 2009. As the graph below shows, over the past 19 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 208,455,000,000,000.00 in 2007 and a minimum value of -18,878,000,000,000.00 in 1998.

Definition: Cash surplus or deficit is revenue (including grants) minus expense, minus net acquisition of nonfinancial assets. In the 1986 GFS manual nonfinancial assets were included under revenue and expenditure in gross terms. This cash surplus or deficit is closest to the earlier overall budget balance (still missing is lending minus repayments, which are now a financing item under net acquisition of financial assets).
