Tax on Production and Import (TOPI)



  • Official comment

    Negative TOPI is due to the given Industry receiving subsidies from the government. TOPI is typically tax payments to the government, so a negative TOPI value suggests a receipt of money from the government. Industry loses would be reflected by negative Other Property Income or by negative Proprietor Income if the loss is to a self-employed owner. To evaluate which Industries in your 120 Events has a Direct negative TOPI you could view the Detail Results, select Value Added > Tax on Production and Imports and then sort by Direct Effect in ascending order so that all the direct negative TOPI values show up at the top of the list.
