Intrastat information

This guide explains the Intrastat declaration, and breaks down the different rules and requirements across the countries in which Intrastat is submitted.

What is Intrastat? 

Companies that move goods (above a certain threshold) across borders in the EU are required to submit an Intrastat declaration. This is a supplementary declaration alongside a VAT return. 

What is the Intrastat threshold? 

The threshold varies from country to country, more information on threshold amounts can be found below. Once you are trading above the threshold within a country, you will be required to submit Intrastat for that country.

Completing Intrastat filing 

In order to declare Intrastat you will need to understand which countries you need to declare for, and what information is required for each country

It’s important to note that some countries offer simplified Intrastat filing, where less information is required, simplified returns tend to be only be available for companies reporting lower transaction values. 

For example Poland, Belgium, France and The United Kingdom all allow simplified returns for companies under the threshold. 

Intrastat thresholds

The table below contains the thresholds for declaring Intrastat, you can also see when simplified or full reports are required.
