2 General information about intra-Community trade

Intra-Community trade statistics cover Germany's physical trade in goods with other Member States of the European Union (arrivals and dispatches).

The system of data collection applied in this area is characterised by the businesses' direct declaration of goods. The Intrastat system is closely interrelated with the value-added tax system, allowing the (indirect) verification of the monthly advance turnover tax returns to be submitted by businesses to the local tax offices.

Further information is given in the Intra-Community trade statistics General Guide.
