HMRC confirms reporting thresholds for goods moving between EU and Northern Ireland will remain unchanged for 2023
The Northern Ireland to EU Intrastat thresholds for 2023 will remain at the 2022 levels of:
- £500,000 for arrivals
- £250,000 for dispatches
The delivery terms threshold remains at £24,000,000.
Intrastat reporting of EU goods movements ended January 2022 for UK as part of Brexit; Northern Ireland – EU movements obligation remain
Following the UK leaving the EU VAT regime and Customs Union on 1 January 2021, the UK had continued to require VAT registered businesses to complete complete Intrastat reporting. This is subject to them exceeding Intrastat thresholds.
This requirement ended from 1 January 2022. Movements between UK and EU are treated as imports / exports. At the same time, the UK customs checks and full declarations were imposed.
The exception is for movements of goods between Northern Ireland and the EU. Northern Ireland (NI) has taken-up dual position with the UK and EU VAT and customs union. This was part of the Brexit agreement settled in 2019.

When completing NI-EU Intrastat declarations, the 2022 additional informational requirements introduced will apply. This covers:
