Since October 2009, the source of business data is the administrative data reception established on those municipal records, which are based on government regulation 210/2009. (IX. 29) on the conditions of performing commercial activities. The National Tobacco Shops are not subject to this regulation, therefore the number of the retail shops excludes them.
