The Business Statistics on Affiliated Companies (BSAC) presents annual information on the main economic and employment variables of companies residing in Spain from industrial, commercial and non-financial services sectors, classifying the statistical findings according to whether the company forms part of a business group, differentiating by the type of group (entirely domestically held, Spanish multinational or foreign multinational). The statistic includes economic aggregates such as the value of production and gross value added, as well as the main indicators.

In addition, and specifically for Spanish affiliates of foreign multinationals, it describes information by the activity and size of the affiliate, as well as the country or geographic area of the parent company having ultimate control over it.

In 2021, the approach to the dissemination of this statistic was expanded to include the new feature of one section of charts on the total companies residing in Spain according to their status as affiliates, and devoting the second section to the statistical finding on foreign affiliates in Spain (FILINT) that the INE had published previously.
