Intrastat


Collection of data on foreign trade is divided into two parts in the European Union. Statistical data on trade between member states of the European Union (internal trade) are collected with a special procedure known as the INTRASTAT system. Statistical data concerning trade with countries outside the European Union, or so-called third countries (external trade) are obtained from the customs clearance system. Besides data on external trade the Finnish National Board of Customs also collects data on internal trade. The INTRASTAT code is updated in the Business Register from the Board of Customs data. The code conveys whether or not an enterprise is obliged to provide data on internal trade within the European Union. The threshold value for reporting statistical data is EUR 200,000 for imports and EUR 300,000 for exports (in 2010).
