  4. 4. The information for the index which follows is according to the latest audited accounts filed or made available by Friday 23rd November 2012. To qualify for inclusion, a company has its functioning head office or registered office at which directors are based within Dorset. If a company has a number of sites in the UK, and its accounts reflect them all, then it is included only if its base within the above geographical location is considered to be its main location. Where a number of companies are part of a group which is also based in Dorset, and the accounts are consolidated, then the group company is the one which is included. If a number of companies in Dorset are part of a group which has its head office elsewhere, then the individual companies will each be listed with their own spe- cific figures. No existing ranking or format exists as a basis for the information which has been compiled solely by DECISION business magazine. In the index, a dash or blank space in a year-on-year comparison column means that no data exists for one of the two financial years in question.

  18. 18. The information for the index which follows is according to the latest audited accounts filed or made available by Friday 30th November 2012. To qualify for inclusion, a company has its functioning head office or registered office at which directors are based within Dorset. If a company has a number of sites in the UK, and its accounts reflect them all, then it is included only if its base within the above geographical location is considered to be its main location. Where a number of companies are part of a group which is also based in Dorset, and the accounts are consolidated, then the group company is the one which is included. If a number of companies in Dorset are part of a group which has its head office elsewhere, then the individual companies will each be listed with their own spe- cific figures. No existing ranking or format exists as a basis for the information which has been compiled solely by DECISION business magazine. In the index, a dash or blank space in a year-on-year comparison column means that no data exists for one of the two financial years in question. COMMISSIONED BY
