Use the Industry Benchmarks on Inland Revenue’s website to:
- compare your financial performance against similar firms in your industry and identify areas where you may differ
- find information to help you make decisions to improve your business performance.
Statistics NZ has worked together with Inland Revenue to make industry benchmarks available on Inland Revenue’s website.
Industry benchmarks are a tool to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) assess and improve their performance by comparing their business with the others in their industry.
SMEs, especially new businesses, can also use industry benchmarks as a tool to assist with their planning and budgeting.
Statistics NZ has calculated the industry benchmarks using information provided by small businesses to Inland Revenue on financial statements and income tax returns.
Statistics NZ returns only aggregate information to Inland Revenue. Statistics NZ does not provide Inland Revenue with any information on specific businesses, nor anything that could be used to identify any business.
For inquiries on the calculation of the benchmarks contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
