About the Annual Enterprise Survey

The Annual Enterprise Survey (AES) is New Zealand’s most comprehensive source of financial statistics. It provides annual information on the financial performance and financial position for industry and sector groups operating in New Zealand.

AES is an important data source for gross domestic product (GDP) because we use AES data to calculate detailed annual national accounts. AES output variables include income, expenditure, profit, purchases of fixed assets, and equity. From this data, we can derive economic ratios, such as the return on assets and profit margin on sales. AES data is also the basis of national accounting variables, such as value-added, gross output, and gross fixed capital formation.

See data quality for our data sources.

We thank our respondents for their contribution to this survey. We also thank Inland Revenue, the Treasury, and the New Zealand Companies Office for providing administrative data that allowed us to lower the size of the postal sample, and so reduce compliance costs on the business community.

The information contained in the tables in this release is only a sample of the information available.

Contact our information centre for more information. 

See Annual Enterprise Survey concepts on DataInfo+ for the definitions of terms used in this release.
