Eventually the statistic information (intrastat) for the European Union was collected by the individual customs in the European member states. With opening of the European markt and the disappearance of internal borders in Europe, the EU didn’t get the information anymore. So since 1993 the individual European countries have to deliver this information by themselves. But how can the collect this information? The individual countries do this via the VAT number and intrastat reporting.
So when you are cross border selling you have to be aware that you are VAT compliant and so provide the statistich information to the local government in the country where are selling when you exceed the VAT treshold.
