In a balance of payments, the basic balance is the net balance of the combination of the current account and the capital account.

Basic Balance

The balance of payment for a country that calculates on the current account and the capital account. The balance of payment is the difference between the value of transactions in which money leaves a country and the value of transactions in which money enters it, while the current account and the capital account are only two of the measures used in calculating it most of the time. The basic balance is less affected by short-term changes in interest rates or exchange rates. It is often used in countries with pegged exchange rates.
