What is Intrastat?

Intrastat is the system that states of the EU use for collecting statistics on the movement of goods between those states. It does not apply to services. It only applies to EU states. The general concept of intra-EU trade statistics is independent from the ownership of the goods. It concerns only their physical movement.

These Trade statistics are an essential part of the balance of payments account and are regarded as an economic indicator of the performance of the country in any given period. The statistics are used by government departments to set overall trade policy, generate initiatives on new trade areas and assessment of goods movements to plan for future transport infrastructure needs.

The private sector can analyse the statistics to assess the market place in order to gauge import penetration and also to use the information on new market places for their goods. Summary Intrastat information is also used by International bodies such as Eurostat, United Nations and the International Monetary Fund.

Why is Intrastat Necessary?

The Single EU market came about in 1993. This brought with it the free movement of EU goods and less complex official requirements. As a result, Intrastat was introduced to simplify documentation and provide a vehicle for control and collection of trade statistics. All VAT registered traders must complete 2 boxes on their VAT Return to account for Imports / Exports to other EU Countries. Traders with imports from other EU member states exceeding EUR 500,000 annually and/or exports to other EU member states exceeding EUR 635,000 annually must complete the detailed monthly Intrastat return.
