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.
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).
