Transfer
Description:

A transfer is defined as a transaction in which one institutional unit provides a good, service or asset to another unit without receiving from the latter any good, service or asset in return as counterpart. Transfers may be either current in kind or in cash or capital in kind and in cash.

In the case of a capital transfer the ownership of an asset (other than inventories) is transferred, or an asset (other than inventories) is purchased or disposed of by one or both parties to the transaction. An example of a capital transfer is an investment grant (in cash).

In practice, capital transfers tend to be large, infrequent and irregular.

Current transfers consist of all transfers that are not transfers of capital. They directly affect the level of disposable income and should influence the consumption of goods or services. Current transfers tend to be comparatively small and are made frequently and/or regularly. Both parties should classify a transfer in the same way (art. 8.27).
