Short recap: What is behind the Intrastat declaration and at what point do you have to declare?
The European Union’s intra-trade statistics – Intrastat for short – are used to record the movement of goods within the 27 EU countries. It records what goods are delivered to a country and what is dispatched from a country. This is determined in two declarations, the arrival declaration and the dispatch declaration.
The obligation to submit Intrastat declarations exists until the end of the current calendar year if a reporting threshold was exceeded in the previous year. If these are no longer exceeded in the current year, the reporting obligation for the following year expires.
How can Taxdoo support you with country-specific Intrastat issues?
Taxdoo offers the handling of Intrastat declarations for the countries Poland, Czech Republic, Italy, Germany and France. Our service includes the entire registration process, the preparation of the declaration and the submission of the declaration by our local partners. For Germany only, you submit the declarations independently. Please note that details such as weight and mass in Poland require special attention. Here, only the submission is confirmed in the customer dashboard.
Other EU countries such as Spain or Austria are not represented by Taxdoo. The Intrastat declarations are structured country-specifically. The EU countries have different national requirements in this respect. In this context, information such as the VAT number, the transaction type or the Intrastat commodity number is requested for the respective EU countries.
Our transaction list can be used as the basis for Intrastat declarations. Please note here that the file must be adapted so that it complies with the EU requirements (details, format, etc.). To ensure that the declaration is submitted correctly, please contact your tax advisor.
The Intrastat add-on for the above-mentioned countries (DE, FR, PL, CZ) can be booked conveniently in the customer dashboard under Subscription - Add-Ons. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Help Center.
