PRODUCER’S PRICE

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Prix du producteur

Definition:
The producer’s price is the amount receivable by the producer from the purchaser for a unit of a good or service produced as output minus any VAT, or similar deductible tax, invoiced to the purchaser; it excludes any transport charges invoiced separately by the producer.

Context:
It also excludes supplier’s retail and wholesale margins and separately invoiced transport and insurance charges. (A producer’s price for a product is the basic price plus any non-deductible tax on products paid by the producer less any subsidies on products received by the producer.)
