As announced in the Business Investment Q2 2013, provisional results on 23 August, 2013, ONS unfortunately had to suspend the publication of the detailed industry breakdowns of business investment, in the statistical release and the time series data set. This was to give priority to meeting the UK’s legal requirements to implement significant changes to the compilation of Gross Capital Formation by September 2014. These changes are required under European legislation, which requires all EU countries to produce National Accounts compliant with the European System of Accounts 2010.
This time series dataset has therefore not been updated since March 2013. The latest period available is for Q4 2012. In June 2013, ONS implemented significant improvements to the estimation of business investment. A description of the improvements and their impact on the estimates can be found in the article Explaining the Impact of the Blue Book 2013 Changes to Gross Fixed Capital Formation and Business Investment - 31 July 2013. The estimates in this time series dataset were produced using the methods in place prior to June 2013.
Up-to-date estimates of gross fixed capital formation, by sector and asset, and of business investment, can be found in the reference tables section of this release.
ONS apologises for any inconvenience.
