TKC Management Indicators (BAST)
These indicators are the result of our analysis of the management performance and financial status of SMEs and medium-size companies (with annual revenue of 10 billion yen or below) which have used the TKC Financial System, etc. for two years or longer.
The indicators contain financial statements (balance sheet and profit-and-loss statement) based on the accounting books prepared in the course of field auditing and account closing, each conducted continuously on a monthly basis by TKCNF members. These financial statements were used as-is to file the corporate income tax returns.
The number of companies (with their fiscal years ending between January 2015 and December 2015) recorded in the year 2017 version amounts to 237,748 from 1,046 different industries, accounting for approximately 9% of total companies across Japan.

No other management indicators on SMEs in the world have such accuracy and speed that attain such a remarkable reputation from tax authorities, financial institutions, and other similar organizations.
