1. The stock of VAT registered enterprises is the number of enterprises registered for VAT at the start of the year. This is an indicator of the size of the business population.
2. VAT registrations and de-registrations are the number of enterprises registering and de-registering for VAT each year. This is an indicator of business start-ups and closures.
3. The population figure is at mid 2006.
4. All counts have been rounded to the nearest 5 to avoid disclosure. This means the totals may not equal the sum of the data in rows and columns, and counts of less than 3 will be shown as zero.
