No dividend paid to the Treasury

The General Council of the Riksbank has, in accordance with the Sveriges Riksbank Act, submitted a proposal to the Riksdag (the Swedish parliament) regarding the allocation of the Riksbank's results for the financial year 2022. As the results for 2022 amount to SEK –80,734 million, the General Council proposes that the Riksbank should not pay any dividend to the Treasury.

This proposal has been calculated in accordance with the guidelines applying since 1988. According to the guidelines, 80 per cent of the past five years’ average profit, after certain adjustments, shall be transferred to the Treasury. The results are calculated excluding exchange rate and gold value effects, but including the price effects reported in the revaluation account on the balance sheet.

A detailed account of the calculation of the profit allocation is presented in the General Council's submission to the Riksdag 2022/23:RB2 The General Council of the Riksbank’s proposal for the allocation of profit 2022 etc.
