  • About this Release


The Management Unit is the largest unit within a business for which detailed accounts are kept on at least a quarterly basis. For most businesses, particularly the smaller ones, it will equate with the legal entity owning the business (i.e. the sole proprietor, partnership, incorporated company, etc.). For larger businesses, there may be a Management Unit for each 'line of business' or 'division' that the business operates. Structurally, Management Units consist of one or more Locations, so their industry code will reflect the predominant activity of their Locations, and their employment will be the sum of the employment of their Locations.

This consultancy service provides a count of businesses (as recorded on the ABS Business Register Extract) at the Management Unit level. Information can be output in the form of tables, maps, reports or files, tailored to a client's specific needs. Business counts can be requested cross-classified by:

employment size ranges -- both standard and customised;
aggregate employment (confidentialised);
industry (Australian Standard Industry Classification for Extract's prior to March 1994 or Australian and New Zealand Industrial Classification);
geographic area (Australian Standard Geographical Classification) including Local Government Areas and Australia Post postcodes;
type of legal organisation; and
public/private sector.
