Table description


This table shows relevant economic data for trade and industry sectors, e.g. the number of persons employed, costs and revenues, turnover and other financial results. The figures can be divided by a number of sectors/ branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 2008).

Data available from: 2009.

Status of the figures:
All data in the table are definite.

Changes as of April 23, 2021:
Figures of 2019 have been added to the table. The results for SIC 70102 Holding companies (not financial) have been corrected for the year 2018. The table contained zero-values for this branche. The zero-values have now been replaced with the correct results for 2018.

A new IASB (International Accounting Standards Board)-leasing guideline (IFRS16) has become effective for listed companies on the 1st of January 2019. Users of operational leases (lessees) can no longer report leasing costs as operating costs in the profit and loss account. The ‘right-of-use’ of the leases involved mustfrom now on be placed on the balance sheet which means the leasing costs are from now on reported as depreciations of assets and financial costs. A number of non-listed companies also follow these new guidelines.
In the reporting year 2019, the introduction of IFRS 16 leads to a shift between the results for the ‘other operating costs’ and the results for the ‘depreciation of fixed assets’ and ‘net financial income’. The results in this table are not corrected for this shift, which leads to a loss of comparability over time for these variables.

When will new figures be published?
Results are made available circa 15 months after the year under review. In March/April 2022, new figures will be published for 2020.

Description topics

Operating costs
The costs made to achieve the operating profits, that is the purchase value of the turnover, labour costs, and depreciation on assets, and other business expenditure.

Since 2007, wage (cost) subsidies are no longer included in net
operating returns. Therefore, wage (cost) subsidies are deducted from operating costs.
Personnel costs
This category comprises expenses like
- gross wages and salaries of employees, including social
security and pension scheme contributions
- payments for temporary workers and hired personnel
- costs of schooling and training
- recruitment and selection costs
- canteen costs
- costs for health and safety provisions
- working clothes
- anniversary celebrations, etc.
Gross wages and salaries
The category gross wages and salaries refers to employees on the payroll
and includes
- wages including employees' contributions to social insurances minus sick pay;
- bonuses, holiday allowances, thirteenth month payments and dismissal payments
- allowances for commuter traffic
- contributions to savings schemes
