This edition has extended the coverage of businesses to include a population of solely PAYE based businesses that were previously excluded because of a risk of duplication. These businesses have also been included in the previous years' estimates shown in this statistical bulletin in order to provide a comparable time series.

Approximately 31.000 of the change between 2011 and 2012 was caused by improvements to HMRC computer systems leading to previously excluded businesses being added to the IDBR.

These businesses were registered before 2012, so distort the year on year change.
