Arab Today, arab today UK: Huge drop in government borrowing

London - Kuna

The UK Government saw a marked drop in its borrowing last month after it started to account for its levy on banks\' balance sheets, figures revealed Friday. Public sector net borrowing, excluding financial interventions such as bank bailouts, was 20 million pounds, compared to 3.5 billion pounds in the same month a year ago, the Office for National Statistics said. This was substantially lower than the 2.5 billion pounds expected by the analysts. The levy on banks\' balance sheets contributed some 660 million pounds in the month while public finances were also boosted by larger corporation tax receipts, VAT and lower spending by local government. The figures come as the Government looks to meet the forecast of its tax and spending watchdog for borrowing of 122 billion pounds in this financial year, compared with the 143.2 billion pounds the previous year. The analysts noted that borrowing figures for earlier this year were revised higher and said July\'s improvement was not enough to hit the forecasts of the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR). They added: \"Borrowing for previous months was revised up, so on current trends it will overshoot the OBR\'s full-year forecast of 122 billion pounds by around 10 billion pounds. This overshoot largely reflects the weakness of tax receipts.\" A Treasury spokesman said the figures continue to show \"deficit reduction taking effect with the public finances in balance in July\". He added: \"However, as recent weeks\' events have shown with the US ratings downgrade and continued turbulence in Europe, it is vital that the Government sticks to this plan.\" Before the financial crisis struck, the Government\'s finances in July were regularly in surplus because it is traditionally a strong month for tax receipts. Until 2009, the Government had not borrowed during the month since 1996. The Government\'s tax receipts were last month boosted by 5.6% to 52.3 billion pounds, helped by a 22% rise in receipts from VAT, after the rate was hiked to 20% from 17.5% in January.
