Czech simplified Intrastat introduced

Potential annual reporting of certain intra-community movements of goods

Czechia has introduced from 1 January 2022 a new simplified Intrastat reporting regime. This is comes with a reporting threshold of CZK 20m (approx. €820,000) for both dispatched and arrivals of goods from other EU member states. For non-high risk goods, this may allow annual instead of monthly Intrastat reporting.

The regular Czech Intrastat reporting threshold is CZK 12m (approx €490,000) per annum on dispatches and arrivals.

Intrastat was introduced at the creation of the Customs Union, when EU member states withdraw border controls on goods. It enables governments to understand levels of trade, but also to track potential VAT fraud on missing trader scams where sales are declared as zero-rated intra-community supplies. When in fact the seller sells the goods domestically with VAT which they then pocket.
