Intrastat in SAP: Reorganizing Intrastat Processing with SAP S/4HANA
Since SAP S/4HANA's functionalities automatically cover the basic features of Intrastat processing, Intrastat declarations and their master data can be managed in one central location within the system.
What Is Intrastat?
More and more companies in the EU are involved in the intra-community movement of goods and are therefore obliged to submit Intrastat declarations. The introduction of the European single market resulted in the abolition of customs clearance and the need to provide statistical information on the movement of goods within the EU. However, in the course of globalization, accurate data entry for the movement of goods has become essential.
Since companies are legally required to declare the intra-community movements of goods, Intrastat declaration functions are crucial within the European Union.
What Changes Are Associated with S/4HANA?
In SAP S/4HANA, the SD-FT and MM-FT components previously known from SAP ERP ECC are no longer supported for Intrastat processing. Instead, the International Trade module provides an integrated solution for Intrastat processing in SAP S/4HANA. Here, Intrastat declarations can also be controlled via the Fiori Launchpad. Since maintenance support for SAP ERP will cease in 2027, it is advisable for companies to soon get to grips with S/4HANA's core component International Trade, which also comprises Intrastat processing.
How Are Intrastat Declarations Entered in SAP S/4HANA?
The Fiori Launchpad in SAP S/4HANA provides a number of apps for creating and processing Intrastat declarations. In SAPGUI, these are available in the International Trade component under Governance, Risk and Compliance.
