Forthcoming publications and the fiscal framework explained – May 2023


Thursday, 25 May 2023 – Scotland’s Economic and Fiscal Forecasts. We’ll publish our next set of forecasts to accompany the Scottish Government’s Medium Term Financial Strategy. These forecasts are part of the Commission’s main forecast publication series and will provide new economic, tax and social security forecasts.

Our report will be published in the afternoon of 25 May just after the Cabinet Secretary for Finance completes her statement to Parliament. We cannot be more precise about timing at this point.

We’ll send subscribers a link to the summary and full report upon publication.


We’ve recently created this videographic to help people better understand how the fiscal framework operates. 

We’d be pleased to get your feedback on it, and whether this is a useful medium for us to use in supporting awareness of how Scotland’s public finances are managed. Please send your views to
