Production statistics (RGS)

See here our letter in English: CBS Letter Production Statistics RGS.

Statistics Netherlands publishes figures on revenues, costs, production, personnel and employment of the business sector in the Netherlands. Figures that are important to determine economic growth. We conduct an annual survey for these figures. That is the Production Statistics. Data on large and small companies, including the self-employed, are indispensable for this. In recent years, the number of small companies and the self-employed has increased, making their participation even more important. We publish the survey results by industry so that you can compare your data with your own industry.

Save time!

You can enter some of your bookkeeping data in the questionnaire automatically. Many companies already use this option. It can save you time as well. All you need to do is link your bookkeeping system to RGS (Referentie GrootboekSchema). Create the link yourself or ask your accountant whether this is also possible for you.
