All construction industries grew from the corresponding period last year. Development was strongest in construction of buildings, where growth amounted 11.4 per cent. The turnover of specialised construction activities increased by 8.3 per cent and that of civil engineering by 0.6 per cent.

The sales volume of construction enterprises grew by 7.8 per cent in construction of buildings and by 4.7 in specialised construction activities in June to August. The sales volume of civil engineering decreased by 1.1 per cent.

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

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, the changes have thus far not been found to have significant effects on enterprises’ VAT reporting in terms of statistics production. More information about this in Changes in the periodic tax return data used in turnover indices .
