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.
Direct message exchange requires authorisation from Finnish Customs. In direct message exchange businesses can send Intrastat declarations directly from their own systems to Customs. More information >>
Using the TYVI service requires Suomi.fi e-Authorizations. The statistical declaration may be submitted on an electronic form or as a standard format file on Posti Messaging TYVI service Tyvi.fi. You can also send your declaration as a standard format file. Use of data transfer requires Posti Messaging’s chargeable TYVI Pro user ID. More information >>
