Transaction Type Table

List of Fields in the Table

The Transaction Types window must be used in connection with INTRASTAT reporting. All EU businesses must report their trade with other EU countries.

In the program, you can use the Intrastat Journal window for this reporting. You can either put the entries in the window yourself, or you can have the program import them automatically by clicking the Get Entries button on an intrastat journal. When you do this, the program imports only entries from the Item Ledger Entries window. If you have some G/L entries that should be included in the INTRASTAT report (for example purchase of office equipment for your own use from another EU country), you must put these entries in yourself.

The completed intrastat journal can either be written to a diskette or printed as a report.

In order for item entries to contain the necessary information when the program imports them to the intrastat journal line, you must have entered the information about the transaction type in the Transaction Types window.

Each country has a set of codes for transaction types that are defined in connection with INTRASTAT. For example, there might be codes for:

ordinary purchase/sale

exchange of returned goods

exchange of non-returned goods

It is a good idea to set up all the codes that are used in your country in the Transaction Types window. When you have set up the codes, enter them in the Transaction Type field on purchase and sales headers or in the same field on the individual purchase and sales lines as you fill out invoices.

If you want to use the Get Item Ledger Entries batch job (by clicking the Get Entries button on an intrastat journal), you must also fill in the Countries, Tariff Numbers and Transport Methods windows.
