Explanatory note

This division includes all business activities, except computer- and research-related activities, which are covered in divisions 72 and 73 of this sector. Some of the activities covered here are often carried out by ancillary units of larger businesses, while others are more likely to be carried out by independent units. Outsourcing is a major factor in changing the way these activities are accounted for. The majority of these activities are carried out for commercial clients, except for legal activities (7411), parts of labour recruitment and provision of personnel (7491) and photographic activities (7494), which are also provided for individuals.
