HMRC have confirmed that there will be no changes in the Intrastat thresholds from 1 January 2011.
Intrastat declarations are used to collect information on the movement of goods from the UK to other EU countries and vice versa. Any business that exceeds the exemption threshold for either arrivals or dispatches of goods is obliged to submit monthly returns. Businesses with annual EU trade above the delivery terms threshold are required to supply additional information relating to delivery terms on their statistical returns.
The exemption threshold for arrivals will remain at £600,000 and the exemption threshold for dispatches will remain at £250,000. The delivery terms threshold remains at £16,000,000.
