Intrastat Returns in Italy
Frequency and due date of Italian Intrastat
It is important to note that Intrastat and ESL returns are merged in Italy. A combined Intrastat return includes data for both, ESL and Intrastat filing.
Monthly Intrastat/ESL returns are due when the total amount of intra-Community supplies (goods or services) in the current or any of the previous four quarters exceeds €50,000. Unlike other EU countries, there are no exemption thresholds to submit this return in Italy.
Also, from January 2022, quarterly Intrastat returns are not due on intra-Community acquisitions of goods or services when these are below the above thresholds.
The due date to submit your Intrastat/ESL return in Italy is the 25th day of the month following the reporting period. In case the due date falls on Saturday, Sunday, or public holiday, the date is shifted to the next working day. In Marosa, you will receive a due date calendar with all statutory deadlines applicable each year.
