Non-financial corporations produce goods and services for the market and do not, as a primary activity, deal in financial assets and liabilities.
This sector includes retailers, manufacturers, utilities, business service providers (such as accountancy and law firms), caterers, haulage companies, airlines, construction companies and farms among others.
The non-financial sector is broken down into two subsectors:
public sector non-financial corporations
private sector non-financial corporations
Tables 3.1.1 to 3.1.11 relate to non-financial corporations as a whole. Tables 3.2.1 to 3.2.11 relate to public non-financial corporations, which are government-owned trading businesses. Tables 3.3.1 to 3.3.11 relate to private non-financial corporations, which are trading businesses in the private sector. All the tables are downloadable as an Excel workbook.
