Questionnaire named reporting year 2023

As from reporting year 2023, the name of the questionnaire will change from 'Production Statistics' to 'Annual Statistics' for all businesses. You may have received a letter/email and questionnaire from us with 'Annual Statistics', in which case the name will remain the same. If you previously received a letter/email and questionnaire named 'Production Statistics', the name 'Annual Statistics' may be new to you. However, the content of the questionnaire is the same.
