  2. Create, ship, and receive transfer orders by specifying Intrastat details.

  3. Generate an Intrastat report that includes transfer order transactions.

Yes. You must create a transaction code for transfer orders, and then select that transaction code in the Transfer order field on the Foreign trade parameters form. For more information, see Set up and transfer the transfer order transactions for Intrastat reporting.

You can specify the Intrastat information for a transfer order on the Foreign trade tab in the upper pane in the Transfer orders form. You can also specify the Intrastat details for a transfer order line on the Foreign trade tab in the lower pane in the Transfer orders form.
