INTRASTAT IN 2019: UPDATE FOR THE DISPATCH DECLARATION FORM
In the context of the European reform of the Intrastat declaration, the online declaration forms for DISPATCHES in OneGate, the Belgian Intrastat portal, will have two additional fields:
- the country of origin of the goods and
- the counterparty's VAT number
In practice, you will have to provide this information as from February 2019 for your declaration of the transactions executed in January 2019.
Nothing changes for any declarations for arrivals you may be filing.
You can prepare your SAP system by implementing OSS note number 2698053 in your system. This note has to be implemented preferably by the end of the calendar year 2018. You can implement the note as of now, since the program change checks whether the declaration period is in the year 2019 or later.
The two new fields will only be included in the declaration file in that case.
