The BACH database

The BACH (Bank for the Accounts of Companies Harmonised) project compiles annual time series (balance sheets, income statements and significant ratio) of non-financial companies from the European Union (EU) -Germany, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Spain, France, Hungary, Italy, Luxemburg, Poland, Portugal and Slovakia-.

Data is provided as percentages and absolute values (total assets, turnover, added value and number of employees) and statistical distribution of structures and ratios by quartiles. Available from 2000 for cross referencing 104 activity sectors and five size categories, defined in terms of net turnover.

The coverage and representativeness of the national samples vary.
