This consultation invites comments on EU proposals to reduce the burden on businesses required to submit Intrastat declarations, and seeks evidence on their impact on businesses and the statistical data made available to users. We also introduce a workable UK alternative to the EU proposals, and assess and compare the relative impacts, costs and benefits. We would welcome views from anyone who has an interest in this area, in particular businesses required to submit Intrastat declarations and users of trade data.
