Intra-UK Trade

Estimates of Scottish exports to the rest of the UK along with the combined (rest of UK and international exports) are available within the publication. As companies are not legally required to report their accounts below UK level, their accounting practices do not allow accurate reporting below UK level. There is also the issue of products being shipped across UK to complete production adding value at various stages, therefore the rest of UK exports should be interpreted with due care. Articles discussing these and other issues in more detail were published in previous Scottish Economic Statistics publications. These can be accessed by the links below.
