General description
This dataset gives detailed aggregates from the Regional Trade in Goods statistics provided to the Welsh Assembly Government by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Data are given for the value of exports in millions of pounds to destinations outside the UK from each UK region by product type (or sector).

Data collection and calculation
In all cases, the figures relate to goods that are exported to destinations outside the UK. This means that exports from Wales to other parts of the UK are not included and there is no element included for components produced in one region when the final product is completed in and then exported from another part of the UK. These figures also do not contain any information on the import or export of services such as banking or tourism.

Data reference periods
1996 to 2017

Rounding applied
Figures are rounded to the nearest million pounds and so there may be some apparent discrepancies between the sum of constituent items and the totals as shown.

Revisions information
Data for previous periods are routinely updated to take account of late submissions to HMRC and on-going validation procedures. Data for the current calendar year may be revised at any time, while data for the previous calendar year may be revised up until the second quarter figures for the current calendar year are published.

From 1st May 2016, there was a methodological change to the way the Non-EU trade-in-goods statistics are compiled. Following a change in legislation, the Non-EU trade-in-goods statistics have changed from the ‘General Trade’ system of compilation to the ‘Special Trade’ system.
For further information on the differences between General and Special Trade, please see the HMRC Methodology Paper for Overseas Trade Statistics.

6/12/2016 - The data from 2013 Q1 has been revised due the implementation of a new methodology. The methodological changes are outlined in the technical documentation in the web links.

Statistical quality
Data are taken from Customs declarations submitted for trade with countries outside the European Union, and from the Intrastat system for export figures with countries in the EU. Exports are allocated to a region by the postcode associated with a company’s VAT registration. Some adjustments have been necessary for exports to the EU, to ensure that manufacturing that takes place at branch premises is properly allocated to the region where the branch is situated. Exports to countries outside the EU already contain a regional coding.
Certain goods, such as North Sea crude oil, ships and aircraft stores, and those not in free circulation, that are shipped to EU countries using traditional Customs declarations, are not allocated to a UK region. Exports falling into these categories are included against the unknown region heading. Thus there are two UK totals, one defined as the sum of the twelve UK regions for comparison with the figures for individual regions and one which also includes the unknown region data giving the total figures for the UK as a whole.
However, certain categories of exports are excluded from this overall UK total which means that it is not possible to fully reconcile these figures with the separate quarterly estimates for UK trade also published by HMRC. These categories relate to overseas companies registered for VAT in the UK, but with no place of business in the UK, exports from the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, and exports to countries outside the EU where the VAT registration numbers have not been properly declared.
