Intrastat in SAP Business ByDesign – Current Approach

Intrastat declarations are periodical declarations on trade within the European Union (EU) regarding both dispatches and arrivals, to be submitted directly by respondents in EU Member States to the statistical authorities of their country.

Initially, SAP Business ByDesign has supported a selected number of countries such as Germany, France, Austria, Great Britain, and Italy, which support was withdrawn in 2015 even though the functionally was still working in most places. Since this led to some confusion, we would like to summarize the current situation:


  1. Intrastat can only be used by customers with the help of a partner or though own add-on development – for all EU countries
  2. With the help of partners or own add-on development: the data must be completed, and the Intrastat file has to be built so that it can be used for upload and reporting to the EU country authorities according to their needs.


The following illustration shows which parts of an Intrastat solution are covered by SAP Business By Design, which parts need to be covered with an add-on:

Currently, we have several customer projects supported by the SAP Business ByDesign ecosystem of partners in different EU countries. We are working with those partners closely in aligning the scenario and bringing additional clarification about their offering. Stay tuned for upcoming information on Intrastat offering examples by partners.

One of our partners is InCloud Soulutions: You can check out their offering here.

      Hello Iris,

      I'm wondering if SAP by Design will support the new specifications of the French tax office (2 different files instead of one, country of origin mandatory for all types of exchanges, etc), starting from the 1st of January 2022, without using the Add-on.

      Thank you for your input
