EU Intrastat Thresholds Guide 2020

What is EU Intrastat Reporting?

EU Intrastat reporting and the relevant EU Intrastat thresholds help customs to monitor the movement of goods within the European Union. It enables European governments to track statistics on the movements of goods between the EU member states. It is also a valuable way to mitigate the risks of VAT fraud.

What is an Intrastat Declaration? 

An Intrastat declaration should detail all the outbound sales of goods dispatched to other EU member states and the inbound purchased arrivals of goods from other countries. In the declaration aspects such as the description of goods, commodity codes, quantity and value of the goods, terms of delivery, departure and arrival information and shipping costs should be included on the declaration. 

When to submit Intrastat reporting?

Each EU member state has its own annual reporting Intrastat threshold. In addition, the thresholds in a country can differ between inbound goods (purchases) and outbound goods (sales). In almost all cases, EU Intrastat reporting must be done monthly. Most usually complete this task at the same time as their monthly VAT return.
