Abstract

This report uses firm-level trade data for the UK to gain a better understanding of how growth in the value of goods and services exports is related to the extensive and intensive margins of trade. It explores in particular how these margins may vary across markets, sectors, and size of exporters. It also considers aggregate trade behaviour across products, markets and time in the context of the UK Government’s twin objective of increasing total exports to £1 trillion and the number of exporters by 100,000 by 2020. It then uses the analysis to model the potential effects on customs revenues likely to result from changes in import documentation. We summarise the main findings in four sections below: the literature review; the analysis and modelling of UK goods exports data; analysis and modelling of UK services exports data; modelling the potential impact of changes in import documentation.
