Turnover in service industries increased by 5.8 per cent year-on-year in April to June

According to Statistics Finland, turnover in service industries grew by 5.8 per cent in April to June. Measured by turnover, the largest service industries continued growing strongly: information and communication grew by 6.2 per cent and transportation and storage by 5.9 per cent from the corresponding period one year ago. Once again, growth was fastest in professional, scientific and technical activities (+7.7%) and in administrative and support service activities (+7.0%). Services are here examined exclusive of trade.

Other professional, scientific and technical activities (+13.7%) boosted most the industry of professional, scientific and technical activities. Management consulting, legal and accounting activities, as well as architectural and engineering activities also increased their turnover strongly.

Renting and leasing activities (+11.9%) and employment activities (+10.9%) brought growth to administrative and support service activities. Information and communication was most boosted by information services activities (+9.4%) and computer programming, consultancy and related activities (+8.7%).

Other service activities still developed weakest among the main industries, growing by just 1.8 per cent. Growth in the industry was still held back by the repair of computers and personal and household goods (-6.2%).

Changes in the Tax Administration's self-assessed tax data have not so far had an effect on the data of turnover indices

The effects of the changes in the Tax Administration's self-assessed tax data have been analysed in Statistics Finland’s turnover indices. Based on the analyses, no significant changes for statistics production were observed in the value added tax reporting of enterprises. More about this under Changes in the periodic tax return data used in turnover indices.
