PRESS RELEASE

EVOLUTION OF TURNOVER OF ENTERPRISES IN

RETAIL TRADE

APRIL 2021

The Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) with this sectoral publication, presents in detail the evolution of the sales/turnover of all classes of activity of the retail trade section. Retail trade is the basic business model of the modern consumer supply chain, through the resale of material goods or services and the promotion of products for profit.

Therefore, retail trade has always been an important productive tertiary sector of the Greek economy with a significant contribution to the Gross Domestic Product.

At the same time, and during the recent circumstances, the monitoring of the evolution of the size of the retail trade activity classes is important, given the direct and indirect effects due to the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

In addition, monitoring the aggregates of the retail trade, leads to conclusions on the evolution of consumption (in terms of volume, characteristics, preferences and substitution of products) of the Greek society, the citizens and the enterprises of the country.

This current publication is part of the sequel of the Press Releases published by ELSTAT (link PR) since April 2020, incorporating the most recent data on turnover from Administrative Sources for April 2021.

A corresponding publication has been scheduled and is released by ELSTAT on a monthly basis, throughout the whole period during which the regular monitoring of the turnover of the retail trade enterprises remains relevant and warranted.

In particular, ELSTAT announces a) data on a quarterly basis, on turnover for all enterprisesclassified in the activity classes of the retail trade divisions (45 and 47 of the NACE Rev.2 classification), b) turnover data on a monthly basis for all enterprises obliged to double-entryaccounting bookkeepingclassified in the activity classes of the retail trade divisions (45 and 47 of the NACE Rev.2 classification) and c) turnover data for the five biggest enterprises, for each of the 10 largest classes, in terms of 2018 turnover, of the retail trade divisions (45 and 47 of NACE Rev.2 classification).

Starting from the press release published in May 2021 (reference period March and 1st quarter 2021) an updated framework, for the determination of the enterprises classified in the classes of activity of the retail trade section, is used which occurs from the linking at micro-datalevel of administrative transactions files of the reference years 2019, 2020 and 2021and of the final Statistical Business Register, of the reference year 2018, that provides a standardized set of data, harmonized with European classifications.
