1. WHAT IS INTRASTAT?
Intrastat is the name of the system for collecting statistics data on trade with goods between European Union countries.
When a country joins the European Union (EU) and part of the Single Market, the customs control on the movement of goods between this country and other EU countries disappears and retailers have no obligation to fill in the customs declaration for the goods.
To replace this source data was created and developed the Intrastat statistical system to collect information directly from economical operators in EU countries that perform exchange of goods with other EU member states. This statistical system is operational starting January 1st,1993 on the level of the European Union and has as fundamentals a number of Regulations that apply in all EU Member States.
