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 finds the item ledger entries between the Starting Date and the Ending Date (which are defined on the Options tab), and creates one line per entry in the Intrastat Journal. Only one line is inserted if the customer or vendor is in another EU country.
If the item ledger entry is a sales shipment that is not yet invoiced, the amount will be calculated as quantity times item unit price. If you have chosen Yes in the Price Includes VAT field, the item sales price will be reduced by the VAT amount.
If the item ledger entry is a purchase receipt that is not yet invoiced, the amount will be calculated as quantity times item unit cost.
The batch job includes item entries from the Inventory application area and the Job application area.
The batch job includes item ledger entries but not G/L entries. If you have entries of this type that concern INTRASTAT, the entries must be typed in manually. For example, your company bought a computer for internal use from another EU country. The computer would not be entered in inventory but posted directly to a G/L account. This type of entry must thus be typed manually in the Intrastat journal.
The completed ledger entries can be printed to a diskette that can be sent to INTRASTAT and the tax authorities by means of the Intrastat - Make Disk Tax Auth batch job. Before starting the batch job, you can print a checklist with the Intrastat - Checklist report. You can also choose to print a report with the information that will be transferred to the printed form from the statistics authorities; the report is called Intrastat - Form. All the batch jobs and reports can be chosen with the Print button in the Intrastat Journal window.
You can define how the batch job will be processed by filling in the fields. Fill them in as follows:
Starting Date: Enter the first date of the period from which the item ledger entries will be retrieved. The batch job will include all entries from this date to the ending date.
Ending Date: Enter the last date of the period from which the item ledger entries will be retrieved. The batch job will include all entries from the starting date to this date.
Cost Regulation %: Here you can enter a cost regulation percentage to cover freight and insurance. The statistical value of every line in the journal will be increased by this percentage.
