Consultation: proposed changes to the Intrastat survey

HM Revenue & Customs is seeking the views of both data providers and users on various Intrastat Simplification options that are being considered.

The Government is committed to reducing the burdens on business, but in considering the impact of the various simplification options it is important to try to balance the demands made on data providers with the needs of users. This is why HMRC is launching a consultation to find out the views of data providers and users on the various simplification options for the Intrastat survey, used to collect statistics on trade-in-goods between EU Member States.

Responses will be considered part of the process to agree a UK Government view on the preferred option(s) and negotiating strategy ready for EU discussions to deliver burden-reducing changes to the Intrastat EC legislation as called for by heads and finance ministers of all EU Member States.

How to get involved

The consultation document details the various options, any issues related to them and contains consultation questions. You will be able to access the questionnaire from the consultation document.

Completed questionnaires, comments and further questions can be sent:

  • by post to uktradeinfo Customer Services, Corporate Business intelligence, HM Revenue & Customs, Alexander House, 21 Victoria Avenue , Southend-on-Sea, SS99 1AA
