Net errors and omissions - BP - monthly

Concept: Different sources of information are used to generate the credit and debit entries on the balance of payments, resulting in a total that is different from zero. This result can be explained by temporal discrepancies of the different sources of information gathered. It is hence necessary to have the errors and omissions account to balance these differences. The account compensates every overestimation or underestimation of the registered components.
