Understanding your company’s Intrastat obligations is essential to being HMRC compliant.

It will help you avoid penalties and the additional work and costs associated with unnecessary visits from HMRC.

Failure to report Intrastats correctly and on time can lead to court action and substantial fines from HM Revenue and Customs. Fines can be as much as £2500 per offence with each late inaccurate declaration considered as one offence.
