The Ancillary Cost Survey (ACS) allows HMRC to publish EU trade data collected from the Intrastat survey on the same common valuation basis as all the other EU Member States. Further details of the ACS are available here.
In the past, selected businesses were contacted and asked to complete and submit a paper survey. To simplify the process, selected businesses will now receive an email with a link to an electronic version.
The ACS is conducted on a voluntary basis, but if selected, your cooperation would be appreciated.
