WHOLESALE INDUSTRY 2005-06
The ACLC Industry Classification includes the classes 342 Sports and physical recreation goods wholesaling and 482 Other culture and leisure goods wholesaling. It would be ideal for data to be separately available for both classes. The 2005-06 Retail and Wholesale Industries Survey used 1993 ANZSIC to classify industry. The only ANZSIC class which corresponds closely in scope to ACLC classes 342 and 482 is 4793 Toy and sporting good wholesaling. The scope of this ANZSIC class is wholly contained within, but much narrower than, the combined scope of the two ACLC classes.
In 2005-06, the total income for Toy and sporting good wholesalers was $3,517.5m of which $3,005.4m (85%) came from wholesale sales and $182.9m (5.2%) from retail sales. Total expenses came to $3,260.9m. Of this figure, purchases contributed to almost two thirds ($2,096.1m) and wages and salaries accounted for a further 11% ($348.5m).
