INTRASTAT

VAT payers (or so called identificated persons) shall draw up and hand over Intrastat declarations in the Czech Republic (separately on dispatch and on arrival of goods to / from another EU member state) under some legal conditions.

These conditions are as follows:

  • the total value of goods dispatched to other EU Member States since the beginning of the calendar year or since the date of the new tax identification number assignment in the course of the calendar year achieved the threshold in the amount of CZK 8,000,000 or
  • the total value of goods that was received from other EU Member States since the beginning of the calendar year or since the date of the new tax identification number assignment in the course of the calendar year achieved the threshold in the amount of CZK 8,000,000.

In the case of a one-time achievement of the Intrastat threshold, with an assumption that no other dispatch of goods shall take place in the same calendar year, the declaration shall be legibly marked with the word “One-time”.

The reporting unit independently monitors whether it achieves the declaration thresholds mentioned in the previous point. To determine the levels of these thresholds, the total value of goods dispatched or received is declared and recorded as the invoiced value.

The values, of which the total value for determining the declaration threshold consists, may be converted to Czech crowns pursuant to the exchange rates used for accounting, for filing the Czech value added tax returnsor intended for calculation of the customs value pursuant to the directly applicable EU regulation.

The Intrastat reports handed over electronically must be sent on the twelfth business day of the month subsequent to the reference period at the latest. The reporting unit must maintain a copy of the report submitted to the customs office for 2 years from the end of the period for their submission to the customs office.
