German Intrastat thresholds

 Dispatches

 Standard return

 800,000€

 500,000€

 Detailed Intrastat

Germany does not have detailed Intrastat returns. All Intrastat filings are simplified. Some countries require detailed intrastat returns when exceeding a given threshold, these returns often require more granular data such as statistical value, port of arrival, etc.

These thresholds are computed annually according to the calendar year. Once the threshold is exceeded once, a calendar year needs to be a completed under the threshold in order to stop filing these returns. For example, if a company exceeds the threshold in March 2016 on arrivals, Intrastat returns for arrivals are due until December 2017. These thresholds are calculated according to the invoice value.
