How do I submit an Intrastat declaration?

The statistical data is declared electronically. The statistical declaration may be completed and submitted via the Intrastat Declaration Service, by direct message exchange or at Posti Messaging TYVI service pages.

The statistical declaration data is entered and sent via the service on the Customs website, where you can also send the declaration as an ASCII- or CSV-file. The service does not require separate testing. The service has a CN8 commodity code search and the system checks the correctness of the codes, so it is not possible to use incorrect codes. The service is free of charge.
