Trade within the EU

EU flagBusinesses trading within the European Union will need to be concerned with some or all of the following submissions:

EC Sales List

All EC registered traders who supply goods to traders registered for VAT in other EC member states are required to declare these on an EC Sales List, sometimes known as "VIES" (VAT Information Exchange System).  For UK traders, there are several ways to supply this data to HM Revenue & Customs electronically:

  1. Manual entry via the Internet
  2. XML file sent via the Internet
  3. CSV or XML file sent via e-mail

We can provide assistance with automated file creation and transmission, and ensure that valid and correct coding is used for each entry.

Intrastat declarations

Data entryWhere the value of goods supplied to other EC member states exceeds GBP 250,000 per year, and / or the value of goods received from other EC member states exceeds GBP 1,500,000 per year, detailed "Supplementary Declarations" must be made for Intrastat (Intra-EC Trade Statistics).

These monthly declarations for movements of goods between EC member states were formerly submitted on paper, but electronic transmission is now mandatory. This can take one of three forms:

  1. Manual entry via the Internet
  2. CSV file sent via e-mail
  3. CSV file sent by EDI

We can provide assistance with automated file creation and transmission, and ensure that valid and correct coding is used for each entry.

NCTS

Traders moving goods between EC member states where the goods have not been imported into free circulation, or exporting controlled or CAP goods via another member state, must use NCTS - the New Computerised Transit System, either via EDI messaging or by keying the details manually into the "Web-dec"  system on the internet.

To avoid the need for re-keying of data, we can help to get EDI messaging up and running so that NCTS declarations can be sent automatically from your transaction processing system.
