Financial statistics of enterprises

What economic activities have the largest turnover? Who invests the most? Financial statistics of enterprises help to assess how enterprises and the economy are doing in Estonia.

Progressive enterprises increase productivity and break into international markets. They can offer more jobs and pay a more competitive salary. This has a positive impact primarily on working-age population in the areas where the successful enterprises operate, as well on the Estonian economy as a whole.

Statistics Estonia publishes financial statistics of Estonian enterprises by year and quarter, economic activity, number of employees and by the controlling enterprise’s country. We publish separately the data for sole proprietors.

The main financial statistics of enterprises are:

  • turnover;
  • costs;
  • profits;
  • assets;
  • liabilities;
  • equity;
  • investments;
  • value added;
  • productivity indicators.

We also collect and publish data for foreign affiliates of Estonian enterprises outside the European Union (outward foreign affiliates) and for foreign affiliates registered in Estonia.
