An error has been identified within the Trade in Services by country split and impacts tables B6, B6A, B6B, B6B_2, B6B_3, B6C, B6C_2, B6C_3 within the ‘UK Economic Accounts: balance of payments - current account’ publication tables as well as the corresponding time series. This was caused by a processing error within Trade and does not affect the whole world totals for Trade and the current account. This error has resulted in the below annual impacts:
Trade in services for Russia; exports, imports and balance for 2015 and will indicatively increase by £1.0 billion for exports, £0.3 billion for imports and £0.7 billion for the balance. This will also impact total trade in goods and services and the total current account for Russia.
Trade in services for USA, exports and balance for the years 2010 to 2018 and has indicative average change of £0.4 billion per year for exports and balance. This will also impact total trade in goods and services and the total current account for the USA.
Trade in services for Hong Kong, exports and balance for 2012 and will indicatively decrease by £0.4 billion for exports and balance. This will also impact total trade in goods and services and the total current account for Hong Kong.
Smaller impacts will also be seen for the other countries noted within these tables alongside the EU and EMU within the time period 1999 to 2018 for trade in services, total trade in goods and services and the total current account by country.
Total trade in services and all other data in this release is not affected.
We apologise for the inconvenience and will correct the error at the first opportunity. This will follow the below schedule:
Trade in services (2016 to present) will be updated within the ‘UK trade in services by partner country experimental data’ release on 23 October 2019.
