Methodology changes to Trade in Goods Statistics from March 2021

This section is News

The way HMRC collects trade in goods statistics has changed, and statistics published from March 2021 onwards will reflect those changes

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) Trade in Goods Statistics (TIGS) are a detailed dataset covering the UK's trade in goods at a disaggregated country and product level. They are published monthly, quarterly and annually from trade declarations, providing access to both aggregated and detailed data for over 9,500 commodities and 250 partner countries.

From 31 December 2020, the free movement of people and goods and services between the UK and the EU ended.

This means the way HMRC collects trade in goods statistics has changed, and statistics published from March 2021 onwards will reflect those changes.
