Operating profit of PDV businesses, 1996/97, 1999/00, 2002/03 and 2006/07

Next update to be advised

According to Service Industry Survey data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, PDV businesses contributed around 28 per cent of the total operating profits of the film and video production and post-production services industry: $48.8 million of a total. of $173.9 million (see Business trends > Income and expenditure).

Although historical comparisons are difficult due to the inclusion of non-employing businesses for the first time in 2006/07, the operating profit margin for the PDV sector has remained consistently above the industry average. In 2006/07, it was 11.1 per cent compared to an industry average of 8.8 per cent.

r Revised estimate.
1. In 1999/00, the ABS published revised top-line figures for the industry for 1996/97.
2. In 2006/07, significant non-employing businesses were included for the first time (i.e. those with an annual turnover of at least $84,00 for film and video production or $70,000 for post-production). At the same time, the ABS released revised top-line figures for the industry for 2002/03 to include such businesses, estimating a revised operating profit before tax of $106.4 million and a revised operating profit margin of 6.6 per cent. However, revised 2002/03 figures are not available for the PDV sector so unrevised 2002/03 industry figures are used in this table.
3. Includes businesses mainly engaged in film and video production and post-production services. Does not include television broadcasters or subscription television channel providers.
