Import Export Support's update for users of Intrastat
Action on Intrastat
If your business submits Intrastat reports or uses the UK Trade Info site, we’re highlighting changes that may affect you.
Action this week
Users of UKTradeInfo may know that the site relaunches on Monday 19 October – that’s next Monday. We want to highlight that data you have saved to the site won’t be migrated to the new site, so export and save all the tables you’ll need in the future.
The IT team behind the relaunch are warning of some bugs in the new site, so expect that from Monday the new site may not be 100% reliable and plan accordingly.
Action from 1 January 2021
For businesses who currently make Intrastat reports, it’s important to know you must continue to submit Intrastat reports after January 1 2021, as well as submitting import and export customs declarations for goods crossing the EU border.
For more on this subject, on the HMRC site there’s a useful FAQ document on Intrastat declaration requirements for 2021, including the reports required for trade through NI.

I regularly post on the IES blog where there's lots more relevant to the import export business.
