The main indicators:

· volume of total production - the actual production which has been carried out during the reference period, irrespective of whether this production has been sold, put on stocks or used for further processing by the same enterprise. Production of products on the basis of contract processing is also included. The enterprise physically carrying out the production, i.e. the (sub)contractor, reports the quantity of total production;

· volume of total production on the basis of contract processing - the actual production which has been carried out during the reference period by the (sub)contractor;

· volume of sold production - the own production sold during the reference period irrespective of when it has been manufactured. In cases of production on the basis of contract processing the principal who receives the finished goods and sells them reports the volume of sold production;

· value of sold production - the value of the own production sold during the reference period (thousand BGN, excluding VAT and excise duties). In cases of production on the basis of contract processing the principal who receives the finished goods and sells them reports the value of sold production;

· volume of production sold on the domestic market - the own production sold during the reference period irrespective of when it has been manufactured. In cases of production on the basis of contract processing the principal who receives the finished goods and sells them reports the volume of sold production;

· value of production sold on the domestic market - the value of the own production sold during the reference period (thousand BGN, excluding VAT and excise duties). In cases of production on the basis of contract processing the principal who receives the finished goods and sells them reports the value of sold production;

· total fee paid to the subcontractor - the fee received by the subcontractor for the work done (thousand BGN, excluding VAT and excise duties);

· fee paid to the subcontractor by the foreign principal - the fee received by the subcontractor for the work done (thousand BGN, excluding VAT and excise duties) from the foreign principal.
