star this property answer text <p>HMRC does not record the values of goods seized from fulfilment houses. Goods have been seized where HMRC believes customs obligations have been contravened. This includes the inability of the fulfilment house to link the goods to an import declaration made to HMRC. Without this link, the value of the goods declared at import is unknown. HMRC will destroy all seized goods after an appropriate period of time has elapsed, unless the importer of the goods can demonstrate it is compliant.</p> more like this

These inform the online marketplace that it could be held jointly liable for an overseas seller’s future unpaid VAT. In the vast majority of cases, the receipt of a notice results in the online marketplace removing that seller from its platform. Seizure of stock takes place under separate powers.</p> more like this

Data from Greater Manchester Police are excluded. A review of GMP data has identified undercounting of crimes involving a knife or sharp instrument. This occurred due to a technical issue with the identification and extraction of all relevant records of these offences from their crime recording system. GMP have changed the methodology they use to extract knife or sharp instrument offences and data from December 2017 onwards have been revised. However, data for earlier periods have not been revised and are likely to exclude relevant crimes that were recorded in GMP. Due to these changes, data for GMP have been excluded from the time series.</p><p>[7]Police recorded knife and sharp instrument offences data presented in this table are submitted via an additional special collection.

Data for the year ending March 2016 have been revised, but data for the year ending March 2015 have not.</p><p>[10]Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Police forces have implemented new crime recording systems and therefore data for the latest period may be under-recorded.</p><p>[11]Sexual assault includes indecent assault on a male/female and sexual assault on a male/female (all ages).</p><p>[12]Homicide offences are those currently recorded by the police as at 11 September 2018 and are subject to revision as cases are dealt with by the police and by the courts, or as further information becomes available. These figures are taken from the detailed record level Homicide Index (rather than the main police collection for which forces are only required to provide an overall count of homicides).</p><p> </p>

National Statistics.</p><p>[4]Since publication of this year’s data (12 February 2015), one additional firearm offence involving the use of a rifle has been recorded. This is not included in this table as an updated offence type breakdown for this year has not been published.</p><p>[5]Police recorded crime data are not designated as National Statistics.</p><p>[6]Police recorded crime statistics for offences involving a knife or sharp instrument based on data from 43 police forces in England and Wales. Data from Greater Manchester Police are excluded. A review of GMP data has identified undercounting of crimes involving a knife or sharp instrument. This occurred due to a technical issue with the identification and extraction of all relevant records of these offences from their crime recording system. GMP have changed the methodology they use to extract knife or sharp instrument offences and data from December 2017 onwards have been revised. However, data for earlier periods have not been revised and are likely to exclude relevant crimes that were recorded in GMP. Due to these changes, data for GMP have been excluded from the time series.</p><p>[7]Police recorded knife and sharp instrument offences data presented in this table are submitted via an additional special collection. Other offences exist that are not shown in this table that may include the use of a knife or sharp instrument.</p><p>[8]Data from Surrey Police include unbroken bottle and glass offences, which are outside the scope of this special collection; however, it is not thought that offences of this kind constitute a large enough number to impact on the national figure.</p><p>[9]An audit of Thames Valley Police into the recording of knife and sharp instrument offences since the introduction of their new recording system in April 2014 has revealed that they were previously under-counting these offences. Data for the year ending March 2016 have been revised, but data for the year ending March 2015 have not.</p><p>[10]Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Police forces have implemented new crime recording systems and therefore data for the latest period may be under-recorded.</p><p>[11]Sexual assault includes indecent assault on a male/female and sexual assault on a male/female (all ages).</p><p>[12]Homicide offences are those currently recorded by the police as at 11 September 2018 and are subject to revision as cases are dealt with by the police and by the courts, or as further information becomes available. These figures are taken from the detailed record level Homicide Index (rather than the main police collection for which forces are only required to provide an overall count of homicides).</p><p> </p>
