EMEBI VS Intrastat

Reading time: < 1 minute

In France, the trade of goods declaration, or DEB, consists of both statistical (Intrastat) and fiscal information. In the other member countries, Intrastat is only statistical and is accompanied by an additional tax declaration to determine the trade of goods between member countries.

The trade of goods declaration or DEB is a statement of the flows of goods between France and the European Union. “Instrastat declaration” is the term currently used in the other member states of the European Union. It is also usual in France to speak of the Intrastat declaration rather than the trade of goods declaration.

The data collected allows the European Union countries to put together trade data to monitor transactions within the European Union.

There are two different elements:

  • Entries: flows of goods from a European Union country into France.
  • Shipments: flows of goods from French soil to the European Union country.

Caution: not to be confused with Import and Export, terms reserved for trade between the European Union and countries outside the European Union.

The Intrastat declaration is required once a certain pre-defined threshold has been exceeded. The threshold corresponds to the sale or purchase amount of intra-community transactions.
