Year-on-year change in turnover in the 6/2011 – 8/2011 and 6/2010 – 8/2010 time periods, % (TOL 2008)
The sales volume of construction enterprises grew by 6.2 per cent year-on-year in the June to August period. In the corresponding period, the sales volume of building construction enterprises increased by 8.5 per cent. Specialised construction went up by 6.0 per cent. The sales volume of civil engineering in turn fell by 2.9 per cent in the June to August period.

The volume index of enterprises’ sales is calculated by removing the effect of price changes from the turnover index series.

Reversed liability for value added tax in construction services was introduced in April 2011. The revision causes changes to the periodic tax return data used as data sources for these statistics starting from the data for April 2011. Statistics Finland will assess during autumn whether the tax reform requires any change measures in statistics production.
