Intrastat - technology and technicalities
Intrastat Supplementary Declaration online form
The Intrastat Supplementary Declaration (SD) online form is a good option for submitting a few lines of data.
It allows you to type your data directly onto the Arrival or Dispatch form.
The following fields have on-screen validation:
- delivery terms
- nature of transaction
- country to/country from
If you include invalid data, a pop-up box will appear giving the correct alternatives.
The following fields are validated during submission:
- commodity code
- net mass
- supplementary units
If you make an error on the form, an error screen will appear highlighting your mistakes. Please note, you can only transmit error-free files.
For added security, there is a 30-minute timeout restriction between your login and submission. This takes the form of a countdown timer, which alerts you five minutes and one minute before you are timed out. Pressing the submit button will give you another 30 minutes. It's important to remember that if you are timed out, all your data will be lost and you will need to log back in and retype the material.
If you have a lot of data to submit, you may want to use the offline Comma Separated Variable (CSV) option. This does not have a time-out facility and will allow you enough time to submit your data.
