This batch job must be used in connection with reporting to INTRASTAT. All companies in the European Union must report their trade with other EU countries. In YOUR COUNTRY, you must report the movement of goods to the statistics authorities every month, and the report must be delivered to the tax authorities.
The batch job prints to a file all the information that must be sent to the tax authorities. Both receipts and deliveries of goods are included automatically. The file contains information from the lines in the Intrastat journal. If you do not specify the drive or file name, it will print to a:\intrastat.
