Conversion of the Unit of Measurements in INTRASTAT Declaration in SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud
INTRASTAT is the system for collecting statistics on the trade in goods between EU member states. One of the challenges of INTRASTAT is dealing with multiple units of measurement for different products and countries. For example, some products may be reported in kilograms, liters, or pieces, depending on their nature and the reporting country. To ensure consistency and comparability of the data, INTRASTAT uses a standard unit of measurement (S.U.M.) for each product category, which is based on the Harmonized System (HS) of classification. The S.U.M. may not always match the unit of measurement used by the traders, so conversions may be necessary.
