The data source for calculating the Industrial Production Index is mainly the Monthly Industrial Production Survey. In addition, data obtained from value added tax (VAT) declarations are also used. With the “The Tax Procedure Law Circular no. 518, dated 24 March 2020”; The period of declaration of VAT statements for March, April and May of 2020 has been extended until the end of Monday, July 27, 2020 for certain sectors, and not all of the VAT declarations of April 2020 have been declared by those concerned. Therefore, the Industrial Production Index for April 2020 was calculated using alternative data sources such as e-invoice, e-archive invoice, card payment and foreign trade data in line with international norms and methodologies. The indexes published will be revised if necessary, after the provision of VAT declaration data.
