Revision of legal form (25 July 2019)

The classification of enterprises by legal form has been revised in the statistics on enterprise openings and closures.

The most visible change is that the category "32 Mutual insurance company" has been removed. The cases recorded in this category have preliminarily moved to "53 Mutual indemnity insurance association". In addition, there has been some shifts from the category "11 Natural person" to the category "12 Decedent's estate, heirs".

The changes apply to the data starting from 2013.
