According to Statistics Finland, growth in turnover in total trade adjusted for working days slowed down towards the end of 2019, just slightly rising by 0.1 per cent in December from one year ago. Over the same time period, the working day adjusted volume of sales, from which the impact of prices has been eliminated, fell by 0.4 per cent. The contraction in wholesale trade weakened the development of both turnover and sales volume in December.

Description: The index of turnover of trade describes development in the turnover of enterprises engaged in trade. Turnover for the largest enterprises in their respective industries is described with the data collected with the sales inquiry while the data on sales obtained from the Tax Administration's self-assessed tax are exploited to describe the turnover of other enterprises. Turnover is exclusive of value-added tax. In addition, the volume index of sales, from which the impact of prices has been eliminated, is produced on trade.
