home / German VAT basics / Frequency and due date of German Intrastat returns
Like in most EU countries, German Intrastat returns are filed monthly. These periods always follow the calendar month.
The due date to file these returns is the 10th working day of the following month. If this due date falls on a Sunday or public holiday, the date is shifted to the next working day. Saturdays are considered as working days for Intrastat purposes
The due dates to submit Intrastat returns in 2016 and 2017 are published by the authorities in this calendar.
