In six out of ten cases, the increases in remuneration will be made by cutting back on the company's margins and in four out of ten cases by increasing the selling prices, again according to the responses of the bosses of SMEs and VSEs to this internal survey, including results have been adjusted to correct an over-representation of the accommodation and catering sector and an under-representation of the industry and construction.
