The trade of goods declaration (DEB/INTRASTAT) is a mandatory declaration that needs to be submitted to the Department of Customs on a monthly basis to declare the flow of goods within the European Union. This allows your flow of goods to be inspected within the European Union.
There are 2 flows between European Union member states: submitting a trade of goods declaration by intra-EU delivery or intra-EU shipment; submitting a DEB/Intrastat by intra-EU acquisitions or intra-EU introductions.
The DEB is used only in France. Other European Union countries must submit 2 declarations: the Intrastat declaration as well as an EC Sales List.
