Principal activity


Dernière mise à jour le :04/12/2019


The main activity carried out by a unit (APE) is, among its activities, the one that generates the most added value.

The principal activity is determined according to the breakdown of the company's various activities. As the added value of different activity branches is often hard to determine based on statistical surveys, it is the breakdown of turnover or of the workforce according to the branches that is used as a determination criterion.


The activity is coded according to the French classification of activity (NAF Rev.2).
