Financial statement data with new statistical unit in 2017

In addition to financial statement data based on legal units (Business IDs), data by industry based on the enterprise unit are now published in the structural business and financial statement statistics. Data are available for the first time regarding the statistical year 2017.

The purpose of the enterprise unit is to describe financial entities instead of administrative structures. One or more enterprise units can be formed from the legal units (Business ID) of an enterprise group. For enterprises outside enterprise groups, the enterprise unit always corresponds to the legal unit. The enterprise unit corresponds to the smallest group of legal units, which in its decision-making process forms an independent production unit. The internal business transactions of the enterprise unit have been eliminated so the data by industry differ from the data based on legal units (Business ID).
