The turnover indices in services are important business indicators, which show the evolution of the services market. The objective of these indices is to calculate the activity of the surveyed sector in value terms. Turnover comprises the totals invoiced by the observation unit during the reference period (quarter) and corresponds to the market sales of goods and services supplied to third parties. Subsidies on goods or services are also included.
