The Northern Ireland Fiscal Council is an independent body created in March 2021 to bring greater transparency and scrutiny to NI’s public finances.

On 20 January 2022 we published our first annual assessment of the revenue streams and spending proposals in the Executive's 2022-25 Draft Budget. This follows the first edition of our comprehensive guide to NI public finances, November 2021.

Our next main report will consider the sustainability of the Executive's public finances and will be released in June 2022.
