Intrastat Enhancements in SAP Business ByDesign as of August 2015

You may all be familiar with intrastat business topic. In this blog, I am going to talk about a recent enhancement in Intrastat feature in SAP Business ByDesign August 2015 release. With this release, we have further enhanced the Public Solution Model (PSM) in Intrastat so that you can view and read content of the Intrastat relevant data.


Intrastat business topic allows you to prepare periodical declarations on the movement of goods, including both dispatches and arrivals between member states of the EU to be submitted to the statistical authorities of their country. The statistical authorities use the data to compile intra-community trade statistics, and thus the term Intrastat. Respondents in EU member states directly submit Intrastat declarations to the statistical authorities of their country.

SAP Business ByDesign supports preparation of Intrastat declaration only for Germany, Great Britain, Austria, France, and Italy. For Italy, preparing a country specific declaration file is not available; Intrastat declaration items can be downloaded in the Microsoft Excel format.

Public Solution Model for Intrastat

With the Business ByDesign August 2015 release, Intrastat is public solution model enabled. This public solution model will help facilitate and support any non-supported country or feature. Thus, whenever legal changes happen over course of time or specific requirements come up, SAP partners can use the PSM to enhance the intrastat solution in Business ByDesign and make it up to date with market needs and legal compliance.

What are the Possibilities with Intrastat Public Solution Model?

Public Solution Model Enablement has brought in a wide scope of possibilities for Intrastat. They are:

  • It is possible to maintain Intrastat specific master data, including uploading or creating the commodity catalog and completing the material classification based on the codes in the commodity catalog.
  • SAP Partners can read content of the Intrastat relevant transaction since the underlying object is PSM released. They can process the data further via suitable actions available in the PSM to create Intrastat-declaration-file-specific data as well as Intrastat files for supported countries. For non-supported countries, for example, Italy, the system provides the possibility to download the processed Intrastat declaration data in Microsoft Excel and using this data, they can create the files in the desired format.

      Hi ,

      Briefly the steps to enable Intrastat solution for a currently non-supported country is as below :

      • Scope Intrastat solution in Business Configuration
      • Once this is done all the relevant EU transactions along with relevant information are recorded in a Business Object called IntrastatValuation(PSM released )
      • Same is also available in WoC view Intrastat Item Worklist under Work Center Intrastat.
      • From Intrastat item worklist data can be exported to an excel from object worklist UI or using PDI Add-On data can be extracted from PSM released Intrastat valuation Business object .
      • With the data extracted in above step now the Intrastat Declaration in the required format needs to be build using an Add-On approach.

      Hope this is helpful . Please get back in case of further queries .

      Is it possible to reuse to BYD logic for intrastat for non-supported countries? The intrastat for most countries is similar and just need some adaptations. Or should be build everything from scratch?
