Glossary of the 1993 SNA - Definition of Term

TermAncillary activity
DefinitionAn ancillary activity is a supporting activity undertaken within an enterprise in order to create the conditions within which the principal or secondary activities can be carried out; ancillary activities generally produce services that are commonly found as inputs into almost any kind of productive activity and the value of an individual ancillary activity’s output is likely to be small compared with the other activities of the enterprise (e.g. cleaning and maintenance of buildings).
