Table description

This table presents information on turnover and development in turnover in the sector motor vehicles and motorcycles trade (SIC 2008 code 45). These figures are shown unadjusted, adjusted for working day effects and seasonally adjusted. Developments are presented as percentage changes compared to a previous period and by means of indices. In this table, the base year is 2015

Data available from 1st quarter 2005.

Status of the figures:
Figures on 2021 are provisional, the preceding periods are definite. The figures of a calendar year will become definitive no later than five months after the end of that calendar year. Until then, the figures in this table will be “provisional” and can still be adjusted as a result of corrected response.

Changes as of February 28, 2022:
Figures of the fourth quarter and the year 2021 have been added. Figures of the previous periods in 2021 may have been adjusted.

Changes as of November 29, 2021:
Due to the correction of a technical error the previously published working day adjusted turnover indices and turnover change variables for all quarters of 2018, the fourth quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2020 are corrected. Some of the day adjusted turnover indices and turnover change variables from 2005 until 2016 are also slightly adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
Quarterly statistics are published on the last working day of the second month after the quarter. Once definite figures have been published, Statistics Netherlands will only apply adjustments if significant corrections are necessary.

Description topics

Turnover working day adjusted
By clearing the quarterly results for working day effects, quarter-to-quarter developments can be followed more clearly. For example, a turnaround in the increase or decrease in turnover can be determined more quickly than if there were no working day adjustments.
Turnover indices
An index compares the value of a variable (e.g. turnover) in a certain period with the value of the same variable in the base period. The index of this base period is 100.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT excluded. Turnover includes the main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.
Turnover year-on-year change
Change in turnover indicates the growth rate with respect to the same month of the previous year as a percentage. Statistics Netherlands calculates this on the basis of non-rounded figures.
