Agricultural and Construction Machinery Wholesaling in NZ

Do you have industry financial benchmarking data for businesses operating in Agricultural and Construction Machinery Wholesaling in NZ? Ideally I would like to receive this information in Excel format

This information can help me to advise a Waikato business on areas of the business they can look to improve upon. As a larger employer in a samll rural Waikato town, the business owners are very keen to try and see how they can improve business performance and protect jobs in these uncertain times.

Response from
Inland Revenue Department

Request received

Dear Mr. Manning, I am writing to acknowledge receipt of your Official Information Act request, transferred to Stats NZ on 6 April 2020. This data is readily available on Stats NZ’s Business Performance Benchmark App (, which uses Annual Enterprise Survey (AES) data. Choose ‘Wholesale Manufacturing’ as the broad industry group and choose ‘Agricultural and construction machinery wholesaling’ as the industry. You can download the data to an Excel file or if you get in touch with us, we can send it to you. AES is New Zealand's most comprehensive source of financial statistics. It provides annual information on the financial performance and financial position for industry groups operating within New Zealand. Data is sourced from Inland Revenue tax data, a Stats NZ postal survey, and from Charities Services. Please use this data with caution as it is below the design-level of the AES. It is not checked by our regular quality checks and can be subject to variability due to sampling error. Stats NZ aims to be responsive to data users’ needs by providing, where possible, data at the lowest available level, however caveats such as the above must be taken into account. You have the right, by way of complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman under section 28(3) of the Act, to seek an investigation and review of this response to your request.
