Table description


This table presents information about developments in turnover in the sector Business and ICT services (SIC sections J, M and N). The data can be divided by a number of branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 2008). The results are expressed in terms of indices with base year 2015. Changes on the same period in the previous year are also published.

Data available from: 1st quarter 2005.

Status of the figures:
Figures on 2020 are provisional. Figures on previous 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 August 31, 2020:
Figures on the 2nd quarter 2020 have been added. Figures on previous periods in 2020 may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
Statistics Netherlands usually publishes the first results two months after the reporting period. Figures may be updated subsequently as a result of increased response. Five months after the reporting year, all late response is used to compile the definite figures, for all quarters in that reporting year. Until that point, figures are provisional. After that, figures are definite. Once definite figures have been published, Statistics Netherlands will only apply adjustments if significant corrections are necessary.

Description topics

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
The change in turnover indicates the growth rate with respect to the same period of the previous year as a percentage. Statistics Netherlands calculates this on the basis of non-rounded figures.

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.
