Together with VAT returns, foreign companies dealing in Poland may be obligated to finalize statistical reports, ‘intrastats’, on the transfer of goods beyond national borders. This comprises the transfer of goods, within the same company or to other companies.
At what point do polish Intrastat reports have to be finalized?
There is a need to finalize monthly intrastate reporting, if local or foreign companies transfer goods, beyond the polish national border, to or from other countries within the EU.
Materials carried into Poland, known as ‘arrivals’, and those transferred out of Poland known as ‘dispatches’ are listed by Intrastat filings. This is a method which began during the start of the EU free trade market in 1993, as the customs borders and reportings were removed.
Intrastate doesn’t come into play in situations, where goods are imported from places outside Europe or exported out of Europe.
What are the polish intrastate reporting thresholds?
Intrastate returns are expected to be finalized, as soon as the reporting thresholds are passed. The intrastate return threshold, for arrivals in Poland, is PLN3,000,000 and dispatches isPLN2,000,000.
For more elaborate Intrastat returns, the thresholds are, PLN76,000,000 for dispatches and PLN42,000,000 for arrivals.
What info does a polish Intrastat filing comprise of?
For every transfer of goods, beyond the polish national border to another EU country must be included in a list. This shipment list should comprise the trade value, weight, quantity, classification, country of arrival and dispatch and commodity code.
When should filing of polish Intrastat be done?
Intrastat at the end of the month can be submitted electronically via the ministry of finance, in Poland’s website within 10 days, from the end of the month, to which they can associate.
Little violation fines maybe available for wrong or late filings.
