Intrastat reporting is the system that is used to record information and generate statistics on the compulsory declaration of movements of goods to or from other Member States of the European Union (EU). Intrastat reporting is required whenever a transaction crosses the border of another EU country/region.

The following steps illustrate the overall flow of information that is used for Intrastat reporting.

  1. Enter a transaction that crosses the border of another EU country/region. When you create a sales order, free text invoice, purchase order, or project invoice, the line transactions will be transferred to the Intrastat form. Information is transferred only if the Country/region type field in the Vendors or Customers form for the sender or receiver of the goods is EU. The Transaction code field in the Intrastat form is set to the default value that was specified in the Foreign trade parameters form. You can change the default value, and complete other Intrastat-related fields manually, before you post the invoice or receipt. When a document line is created, default entries for Intrastat-related fields are taken from the document header. You can change the information on the lines before you post the document and transfer transactions to the Intrastat form.

  2. Generate Intrastat transactions by using the Intrastat form. The information for the Intrastat form is found in and transferred from customer packing slip journals, vendor product receipt journals, and invoice journals in Accounts receivable, Procurement and sourcing, and Project management and accounting.

The following steps illustrate the setup process for Intrastat.

  1. Select base data for Intrastat. This can be found in the Address setup, Commodity codes, Transaction codes, Transport method, Port, and Statistics procedure forms. In addition to this information, you can also include information about weight, origin, additional units, and charges on net amount.

  2. Set up default values for Intrastat transactions in the Foreign trade parameters form.

The following table shows requirements that must be completed before Intrastat transactions can be generated.
