EU 2022 Intrastat reporting updates

Two new data requirements on country of origin and the recipient introduced from 1 January 2022

The EU’s reporting regime for the movement of goods between member states, Intrastat, is being updated on 1 January 2022. This will require the capture and reporting of extra information by companies shipping goods between EU member states. This is based on (EU) 2019/2152.

You can review Intrastat thresholds here.

The two main changes are:

  1. Requirement to declare the country of origin for dispatches, goods being ‘exported’ from one EU member state to another. This is already required for arrivals of goods. The country of origin is where the goods were produced or materially processed to the current form where several countries involved in the manufacturing and/or parts.
  2. The VAT identification number of the recipient of the goods dispatched. Exceptions may need to be applied to this rule, including:
    • triangulation (use either: 1. recipient’s ID; or 2. invoicing party’s ID – however that would mean different country code ID from country of destination and could trigger questions.
    • B2C sales In the case of the recipient being a non-taxpayer (no VAT number), the code QC123 should be used;
    • movement of own stocks between locations
    • cases where the VAT ID is not known

2022 Intrastat changes

The above changes were intended for 2020, and have already been introduced by Belgium, Germany and Hungary. Intrastat is largely run for Eurostat, and these changes are part of the ongoing reforms for EU Framework Regulation Integrating Business Statistics, FRIBS. This aims to co-ordinate statistical data captured for EU purposes.
