ORGANISATIONS

The table below shows the number of actively trading businesses in selected music industries in June 2007. These counts exclude: entities which had an active Australian Business Number (ABN) but which did not have a goods and services tax (GST) role; and businesses with a GST role which had not returned a Business Activity Statement (BAS) for more than five quarters or had returned a BAS reporting zero dollar amounts. These figures are not comparable to Business Register Counts presented in previous editions of this publication due to differences in scope.

In June 2007 there were 8,349 actively trading businesses in one of four selected music industries. A majority of these businesses were non-employing (71%). Around two-thirds of these businesses (68%) were in the music and theatre productions industry.
