Sector Tables

The Central Balance Sheet Database collects accounting data on enterprises having the Simplified Corporate Information (Informação Empresarial Simplificada, in Portuguese) as source of information since 2006. The Simplified Corporate Information has replaced the annual survey of the Central Balance Sheet Database of Banco de Portugal, which was not exhaustive. In 2010, the accounting standards were changed, as the Official Chart of Accounts (Plano Oficial de Contabilidade, in Portuguese) was replaced by the Accounting Standards System (Sistema de Normalização Contabilística, in Portuguese) and the Accounting Standards for Micro-entities (Normalização Contabilística para Microentidades, in Portuguese). This change had an impact on the basic information of the Central Balance Sheet Database, as underlying accounting concepts were redesigned.

Against this background, the Central Balance Sheet Database provides the following statistical products: Sector Tables, Enterprise and Sector Tables and the Sector Tables Long Time Series.

  • The Sector Tables comprise a more comprehensive set of economic and financial indicators by sector of economic activity and size class, in accordance with the accounting concepts underlying the Accounting Standards System and the Accounting Standards for Micro-entities. These series are available since 2010 and are targeted at the general public.
  • The Enterprise and Sector Tables are also available since 2010 and combine individual information on enterprises with data available in the Sector Tables for the economic activity sector and size class aggregate where they are classified. The Enterprise and Sector Tables are available at the Corporate Area and require prior permission and authentication.
  • The Sector Tables Long Time Series includes a more limited set of indicators by economic activity sector and size class, in accordance with the concepts underlying the currently applicable accounting standards and ensuring comparability of concepts throughout the period under analysis. These series are available since 1995 and are targeted at the general public.

Please find below the annual results of any aggregate in the Sector Tables and the Sector Tables Long Time Series (also available in the multidimensional component of BPstat – Statistics online).
