GFS model (international model according to IMF)

The GFS model (Government Finance Statistics) is used to guarantee the comparability of the finances of the Public Administration at national level. It is based on the norms in financial statistics established by the International Monetary Fund (Government Finance Statistics Manual 2014) that are compatible with the European system of national and regional accounts (ESA 2010).
