The FASE are disseminated quarterly at, with a 16-week lag with respect to the reference quarter

The document is structured in seven sections relating to the main methodological features: legal and institutional framework, dissemination of information, compilation and structuring of accounting information, consistency of information from different standpoints, delimitation of institutional sectors and main sectoral information sources and, finally, classification of financial instruments and some salient aspects of their valuation.
