About the statistics

Accounting statistics for non-financial foundations provide us with an overview of enterprise-economic magnitudes, capital strength and liquidity for all foundations combined, and for non-profit foundations.

Definitions

Definitions of the main concepts and variables

Operating income and operating expenses are ordinary incomes and expenses except financial ones. Operating income is divided into sales revenues and other operating income. Regarding non-profit foundations, membership fees, contributions, donations and raised funds are also components of operating income. Operating expenses consist of used raw materials and consumables, changes in inventories, costs of asset acquisition, costs arising from the organisation’s objectives, wages and administrative expenses, depreciation and write-downs of fixed assets, and other operating expense. Ordinary depreciation concerns systematic depreciation of tangible fixed assets and intangible assets which deteriorate because of age and the like.

Financial income and financial expenses are ordinary revenues and expenses relating to investments, securities, debtors and debts.

Taxes represent taxes related to the accounting result, and consist of taxes payable, expected reimbursement claims from owners and changes in deferred taxes. Taxes are divided into taxes connected with ordinary result and tax expense connected with extraordinary items.

Fixed assets mainly cover assets which are included in the foundations’ long-term value creation and which are intended for permanent use or ownership, and debtors and securities which are scheduled for repayment later than one year after the time of settlement. They include tangible fixed assets such as property, intangible assets such as research and development, and long-term investments.

Current assets are assets which are connected with the foundations’ sale of goods and services, or which are expected to have a functional period of less than one year in operation. They are made up of cash and shot-term investments, debtors and inventories. Debtors are current assets if it has been agreed or scheduled that they will be repaid within one year after the end of the financial year.

Equity (net assets) is defined as the share of total assets belonging to the foundation, and is total assets minus liabilities.

Liabilities consist of all obligations which may restrict the foundation’s use of its resources in the future. Liabilities are composed of provisions for liabilities and charges, other long-term liabilities, and short-term liabilities. Long-term liabilities are legal or financial obligations not meant to be redeemed in the next accounting period, and are unrelated to the foundation’s short-term sales of goods and services. Short term liabilities are liabilities falling due for payment within one year from the time of settlement, or liabilities directly related to the foundation’s short-term sales of goods and services.

The key figures provide information about the foundations’ capital strength and liquidity. Equity ratio expresses the capital strength of the foundation, i.e. its ability to withstand setbacks and losses. Current ratio is an indicator of the foundation’s ability to pay debt. Since current ratio is only measured at balance-sheet date, it has limited information about the current ability to pay debt.

Standard classifications

Industrial classification is in accordance with the revised Norwegian Standard Industrial Classification (SN2007) based on the EU industrial classification NACE Rev. 2. Foundations operating in several fields are mainly grouped by the activity which contributes the most to the foundation’s overall added value.

Non-profit foundations may also be classified according to sphere of activity by the use of International Classification for Non-Profit Organizations (ICNPO codes.). The table below shows the ICNPO-categories:

Background

Background and purpose

The purpose of accounting statistics for foundations is to obtain information for economic overviews and analyses to be used in research and national accounts. The statistics provide a basis for the comparison of foundations, including non-profit foundations, classified according to ICNPO codes, over time. For further information on ICNPO, see item 4.2.

Users and applications

The major users of the statistics are the Ministry of Culture, the National Account’s satellite accounts on non-financial foundations, voluntary organisations, and research foundations.

Equal treatment of users

No external users have access to the statistics and analyses before they are published and accessible simultaneously for all users on ssb.no at 08 am. Prior to this, a minimum of three months' advance notice is given inthe Statistics Release Calendar. This is one of Statistics Norway’s key principles for ensuring that all users are treated equally.

Coherence with other statistics

Legal authority

Statistics Act Section 3-2. The data are collected from the Register of Company Accounts in Brønnøysund.

Production

Population

The statistics cover all foundations which are required to submit annual reports, and which have submitted annual reports when Statistics Norway collects the data. Only non-financial foundations are included in the statistics. Annual reports having serious flaws either in profit and loss account or the balance sheet are not included in the statistics. Annual reports for companies which are winding up are omitted, since the reports are not prepared under the going concern assumption and can consequently not be compared with other accounts.

Data sources and sampling

A foundation is created when, by a will, an endowment, or other legal disposition, an asset is made available for a certain social, charitable, economic, educational, humanitarian, or other purpose. Privately established autonomous funds, bodies and legacies are also classified as foundations. Most foundations are not tax liable and do not therefore submit tax questionnaires on accounting. They are however obliged to submit annual reports, and do submit them to Brønnøysund.

The foundations’ financial situation, found in profit and loss account and the balance sheet, will be presented, their solidity and liquidity elucidated.

Census.

Collection of data, editing and estimations

The Register of Companies in Brønnøysund prepares the annual reports before electronically submitting them to Statistics Norway. All the data being obtained from the Register of Companies in Brønnøysund, foundations have no response burden with regard to accounting statistics for foundations.

The Register of Companies in Brønnøysund and Statistics Norway check the annual reports manually and mechanically to ensure that the information is correctly recorded. More checks are carried out to make sure that there is consistency between some accounts in profit and loss account and the balance sheet.

The statistics are estimated by adding up a certain account, e.g. debtors, for all the units in the statistics.

Seasonal adjustment

Confidentiality

As a rule, a figure is not published if it is based on fewer than three units. Also, if one company has a share of 90 per cent or more of the value, or if two companies contribute 95 per cent or more to the value, the figure is not published.

Comparability over time and space

The total amounts in the statistics are comparable from 2008.

Accuracy and reliability

Sources of error and uncertainty

Errors can arise when the data are being registered or processed at Statistics Norway or at the Register of Accounts in Brønnøysund.

The degree of specification in the profit and loss accounts and the balance sheets varies from annual report to annual report. Although a standard chart of accounts specifying items is established by accounting legislation, different items may nevertheless be combined, if a more clearly set out annual report may result from that. In addition to that heterogeneity in the data, the contents of particular items may vary according to the activity to which the foundation belongs.

As regards the foundations which do not follow calendar year, it is the account closed in the calendar year which is covered by the statistics.

Not all annual reports are available when the statistics are produced. Therefore, the data are incomplete.

The statistics are based on census and do not therefore have uncertainties concerning sampling variance and non-response, with which sample surveys are encumbered.

The statistics are among other things based on information from registers at a given point in time, while both administrative and statistical registers are continually updated and are consequently changed when the statistics are being produced.
