Intrastat intra-community reporting
Intrastat is the European Union reporting regime that enables countries to monitor the movements of goods and trade within the 28-member state free trade zone. It was introduced in 1993 with the launch of the single market. Companies moving goods across EU internal national borders must declare (generally monthly) the movements in filings submitted with their VAT returns. Most countries require separate filings for dispatches (goods sent to another EU country) and arrivals (goods received from another EU country. Countries set their own Intrastat reporting thresholds.
