What is Intrastat?

Intrastat is a system for collecting data on trade between EU member states, and the monthly report is submitted electronically in the prescribed format of the statistical Intrastat form.

WHO SHOULD SUBMIT INTRASTAT REPORTS?

All business entities in Croatia that meet the following conditions:

  1. have a Croatian VAT ID number
  2. trade with other EU countries
  3. they have crossed the annual Intrastat entry threshold
    • arrivals = 2 200 000 HRK
    • dispatches =  1 200 000 HRK.

HOW TO BECOME AN INTRASTAT REPORTING OBLIGATOR?

  1. Self-applying - after you have determined that you crossed the annual threshold for intra-EU trade in goods.
  2. Mandatory application - if you failed to apply by self-applying, the Customs Service and the Central Bureau of Statistics determine the obligation.
  3. Voluntary application - If you trade within the EU and do not exceed the annual threshold, you can volunteer in the Intrastat system.

WHAT INFORMATION IS REQUIRED TO MAKE A REPORT?

  • date of physical arrival / dispatch of goods
  • commodity code - if it is not known, we can determine it on the basis of commodity data
  • Croatian description of goods
  • country of destination/delivery
  • terms of delivery (INCOTERMS)
  • type of business - eg. buying, exchanging, etc.
  • type of transport - means of transport by which goods crossed the Croatian border
  • country of origin of the goods
  • net mass
  • quantity in the unit of measure (number of pieces, m2, liters, etc.)
  • value of goods

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING THE INTRASTAT REPORT

The Intrastat form submission deadline is the period up to the 15th of the month following the month for which the Intrastat form is submitted. If the 15th day of the month is a non-working day, the deadline for delivery is the last working day before the 15th.
