Business Sales Indicator

Business Sales Indicator

Our monthly Business Sales Indicator (BSI) reflects spending trends around Australia. It tracks the value of credit and debit card transactions processed at businesses with CommBank merchant facilities.

  • CommBank handles around 30 per cent of all Australian merchant credit and debit transactions (more than any other bank)
  • The main monthly indicator of spending is the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) Retail Trade. However, this only covers spending at retail establishments
  • The BSI includes transactions made at supermarkets, clothing stores, cafes and restaurants. It’s more comparable to the ABS’ quarterly Household Final Consumption Expenditure
  • It also covers airlines, car dealers, water and power companies, motels, business, professional and government services and wholesalers
