In September 2014, ONS will publish revised figures for the UK National Accounts, including gross domestic product (GDP) and balance of payments.
These revisions will reflect significant changes to the international standards adopted by all European Union (EU) member states, as well as other improvements designed to ensure that the UK National Accounts continue to provide a reliable framework for analysing the UK economy and comparing it with other countries.
Web pages explaining the scope of the improvements and the timing of their implementation, alongside the potential impacts of the changes, have now been published. These will act as the central hub for information as the picture develops. http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/naa1-rd/national-accounts-articles/changes-to-national-accounts/sty-national-account-changes.html
