Companies exporting to Northern Ireland need to adapt to changes in INTRASTAT

Companies purchasing from or delivering goods to Northern Ireland have to adapt to a new change in the INTRASTAT declaration. A change that involves modifications in the ERP. This change affects the export flow and applies from January 2022.

What is the INTRASTAT system

The INTRASTAT declaration is a European regulation that must be complied with by all European Union companies that purchase and/or export to Northern Ireland.

The purpose of this regulation is to know the trade statistics of the member states.

Changes in INTRASTAT

According to the Tax Agency’s web page, these modifications will be applicable to declarations of international trade in goods between countries of the European Union and Northern Ireland for periods referring to 2022 and later, when they refer to the export flow.

This implies that in addition to the data previously declared, the following must be included:

  • The code of the country of origin of the goods.
  • VAT VIES identification number of the intra-community operator assigned by the EU country or Northern Ireland to which the goods are exported.

The Tax Agency indicates on its website that the identification number QV999999999999999999999999 will be used in the following cases:

  1. When it is impossible to provide the identification number.
  2. When the identification number cannot be determined because of sales to taxable persons or to non-taxable persons (e.g. private individuals) who are not identified for VAT purposes or of the specific goods or movements referred to in Chapter III of Annex V of the Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 2020/1197.


On the same web page, the Tax Agency details how the file structure would be.
