Greek Intrastat thresholds

The following annual Intrastat thresholds apply in Greece in 2023 (calendar year):

  • Arrivals: EUR 150,000
  • Dispatches: EUR 90,000

These thresholds are computed annually according to the calendar year. Once filed, a complete calendar year needs to be covered by a company in order to stop filing these returns. For example, if a company exceeds the threshold in March 2023 on arrivals, Intrastat returns for arrivals are due until December 2024. These thresholds are calculated according to the invoice value. The authorities monitor the thresholds and often send letters to each taxpayer requiring them to file missing Intrastat return.
