$268.8b deficit recorded

The Government today announced it recorded a $268.8 billion deficit for the nine months ending December 31 last year.   Expenditure for the period was $620.1 billion and revenue was $351.3 billion.   The Government said there was a deficit mainly because some major types of revenue, including salaries and profits taxes, are mostly received towards the end of a financial year.   It was also due to the Cash Payout Scheme payments and measures under the Anti-epidemic Fund.   Fiscal reserves stood at $891.5 billion at the end of December.
