Our latest small business benchmarks data is available for use in your products.

The Small business benchmarks 2016-17 data, which is available as a resource attachment below, contains the latest benchmark ratios and data from more than 100 industries. Data from the 2015-16 financial year is also available below.   

These benchmarks provide the largest and most comprehensive financial data set for Australia’s small businesses and have been independently verified and meet international standards. They are calculated from the tax returns of over 1.5 million small businesses.

This data is available for use in your software products and services, and allows your users to see how their business’s performance compares to similar businesses in the same industry.

If your user’s industry isn’t represented in our benchmarks, you can use the information in our annual publication Taxation statistics.
