Enterprise: a business or service entity operating in New Zealand. It can be a company, partnership, trust, estate, incorporated society, producer board, local or central government organisation, voluntary organisation, or self-employed individual.

Goods and services tax (GST): Respondents are asked to exclude GST if possible in the financial figures they provide in the questionnaire. If they do not exclude GST, we take out GST to make all enterprises comparable.

Limitations of the data

Sampling error tables available at

The Business Operations Survey results are subject to measurement errors, including both non-sample and sample errors. These errors should be considered when analysing the results from the survey.

Changes to data collection/processing

Because of the large range of data needed, Statistics NZ developed an integrated, modular survey – the Business Operations Survey – to collect the required information and minimise the reporting load for New Zealand businesses. The survey was designed to include a range of ‘modules’ and has been run annually by Statistics NZ since 2005.
