Comprehensive data from hundred of companies.

Hundreds of companies and institutions filled out questionnaires for the Largest in Business yearbook. The latest edition is available in our online shop.

In this story, you will find out which company paid the most in taxes, what event will shake up the rankings in the category of shopping malls next year, as well as what change occurred among the companies that are hiring directors for companies.

The rankings provide ratings in 50 different categories and show which sectors or companies have grown the most. Not only will the tables in the printed version of the story provide you with the economic performance of companies and the names of directors, but also with contact details and the areas in which the ranked companies operate.

Within the financial sector, the ranking was typically based on the value of assets.
