Importing data on international trade in services in IDEP

In IDEP you can fill in the data manually, but you can also import the data from your own administration. If you have to enter a large number of records, it is more time efficient to use the import function.

How does importing the data work?

You need to create your own file with the requested data. We advise you to use Excel for this. To import the data into IDEP, you need an import template. In IDEP you can choose a standard import template that corresponds with the structure of your file. It is also possible to create your own import template.

Imports and exports of trade in services within and outside the European Union

Do you need to break down your imports and exports of services to trade within and outside the European Union? If so, you have two options to supply country codes.
1. You convert the country codes per service into Z1 (European Union) or Z2 (Outside European Union) in your own administration. Afterwards, you can copy these data into the file you are going to import.
2. As of 2022, it is also possible to supply a separate country code per service in the file. The country codes are automatically converted to Z1 or Z2 during loading in IDEP.

Import and export of trade in services by country

Do you have to report your imports and exports of trade in services by country? Then, you do need to specify the country code in the file per service itself.
