You will get values in the FormCollection, only if a "form" is submitted (using form tags and submit buttons). In your code you are just "redirecting" to a page. Check out the basics of mvc 3 / html.

<input type="input" name="hiddenbranch" value="@Model.YourValueProperty" />
@Html.ActionLink("search", "AcctSearch", "AcctConfirmation",, new
                 @class = "openDialog",
                 data_dialog_id = "searchDialog",
                 data_dialog_title = "Account Code"
public ActionResult AcctSearch(int hiddenBranchId )
    var sample = hiddenBranchId ;

Hope this helps
