Description topics

Employer enterprises
Total
Employer:
Enterprises with employees. An enterprise is the actual transactor in the production process characterised by independence of decisions regarding that process and by offering its products to third parties. An enterprise is defined as an employer when in one year at least 0.5 FTE of labour force are on the payroll, excluding the director.

It follows from this definition and in particular from the independence element that an enterprise can comprise more than one establishment, but also more than one legal unit. (Legal units include both natural and legal persons). This is the case when the individual establishments or legal units do not operate independently. Conversely, it is possible to distinguish between different parts within a legal unit that operate independently in terms of production. These then constitute as many enterprises as defined. The latter is especially the case for larger groups with diverse activities.
activities. When a unit thus defined extends over several countries, the Dutch part is regarded as a whole company for the sake of national statistics.

In official CBS terminology the enterprise as defined here is called the enterprise unit (BE), so that there is no confusion with the term enterprise used in common parlance, which is not very precise in this respect.

The statistical unit enterprise is an operationalisation of the kind-of-activity unit, as defined by Eurostat. This definition combines two requirements that may conflict: contributing to one activity versus corresponding to one or more operational units. The Netherlands gives priority to the second requirement when operationalising to the statistical unit enterprise.
