Notes

•  HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has today published a set of new regional trade statistics figures for the fourth quarter 2007. The 2007 data is provisional, and subject to the normal updates in overseas trade statistics relating to late receipt and amendments of trade declarations.

•  The News Release uses the new EU27 country group as from Quarter one, 2007, including Bulgaria and Romania . A corresponding change follows for the non-EU country group.

•  Data taken primarily from Customs systems (for non-EU trade) and the Intrastat survey. HMRC do not receive information in respect of goods that move wholly within the UK , nor in intangibles and services such as banking or tourism. Trade is mainly allocated to a region by the postcode associated with a company's VAT registration, and aggregated tables are produced to facilitate time series analysis. These tables are provided in a separate document released in conjunction with this News Release.

•  Some adjustments have been necessary in the production of export statistics by region to ensure manufacturing that takes place at branch premises is properly allocated to the region where the branch is situated. However, adjustments are not made to import statistics and therefore, in some cases, trade has been allocated to the region where the head office is situated.

•  Regional Trade Statistics (RTS) total values differ slightly from the UK level Overseas Trade Statistics; RTS does not include estimates for non-response, including estimates for the missing EU Imports associated with Missing Trader Intra-Community VAT Fraud (MTIC Fraud).
See http://www.uktradeinfo.com/pagecontent/documents/MTIC_Oecd.pdf for more information.

•  Data for 2005 onwards are based on the revised methodology used to calculate trade statistics concerning Gas and Electricity. As they are now calculated on a physical flow rather than fiscal transaction, there is no satisfactory method to allocate this trade to a region. It has therefore been allocated to the Unknown region.

•  The Regional Trade Statistics also include estimates made for trade below the Intrastat threshold.

•  Estimates relating to trade in goods within classification codes that have changed since the previous year are not assigned to a region but are included within ‘Unknown region' for completeness.

•  Information on the methodology used for the Regional Trade Statistics time series can be obtained from the National Statistics website on www.statistics.gov.uk and also on the trade statistics information website www.uktradeinfo.com .

•  The Regional Trade in Goods figures are in the scope of National Statistics. National Statistics are produced to high professional standards set out in the National Statistics Code of Practice. They undergo regular quality assurance reviews to ensure they meet customer needs. They are produced free from any political interference.

•  The next release will be published on 12 June 2008 . This will include revised data for the first four quarters of 2007 and a set of new regional trade statistics figures for first quarter 2008.
