United Kingdom Current Account  1946-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

UK's current account deficit widened to £25.4 billion in the third quarter of 2016 from a downwardly revised £22.1 billion gap in the previous period but lower than market estimates of a £27.4 billion shortfall. Bigger gaps were recorded for trade (£13.6 billion from £7.3 billion) and secondary income (£6.9 billion from £6.1 billion), partially offset by a narrowing in the primary income deficit (£5 billion from £8.7 billion).

A current account deficit of £20.9 billion was recorded with the European Union, lower than a deficit of £22.3 billion in the previous quarter while the current account gap with non-EU countries widened to £4.6 billion from £0.3 billion surplus. Current Account in the United Kingdom averaged -3513.23 GBP Million from 1946 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 2657 GBP Million in the first quarter of 1981 and a record low of -26298 GBP Million in the fourth quarter of 2013.
