(a) 'Small business' refers to those businesses whose total income and/or expenses were $10,000 or more, up to a limit of $5 million, in the financial year and operate from a single location. Note: this differs from the standard ABS small business definition.
(b) These estimates are considered experimental and should be used with caution.
(c) Data are derived using Australian Taxation Office (ATO) files for companies, partnerships and trusts and individuals for 1995-96 and 2000-01. Includes non-employing businesses.
(d) Differences between Small Business and ABS Business Register data are due to differences in scope, reference period, statistical unit and the definition of data items.
(e) The decrease in the number of businesses operated by individuals and partnerships and trusts in 2000-01 should be interpreted with care. It could be because of administrative reasons e.g. it may reflect a different focus from the ATO in 2000-01, or a lower number of business tax submissions received by the due date.
(f) Includes records that could not be allocated an ANZSIC code.
