Changes ITG as of January 2022

The following will change as of the reporting period January 2022:

Arrival/Intra-Community Acquisition (ICV)

Due to the new European regulation, it is no longer possible to submit an annual declaration. If your estimated ICV value for 2022 (based on your ICV value in 2021) remains below EUR 5 million, your ICV reporting obligation ends in 2022. If your estimated ICV value exceeds EUR 5 million, you will have a monthly ICV reporting obligation in 2022.

In the field Nature of transaction, you must now fill in the second digit of the transaction code in addition to the first digit. For more information on the fields, see the Manual Statistical Declaration.

Dispatch/Intra-Community Supply (ICL)

Due to the new European regulation, it is no longer possible to submit an annual declaration. If your estimated ICL value for 2022 (based on your ICL value in 2021) remains below EUR 1 million, your ICL reporting obligation ends in 2022. If your estimated ICL value exceeds EUR 1 million, you will have a monthly ICL reporting obligation in 2022.

As of 2022 the following two fields will be mandatory for all companies with a reporting obligation:
- Partner ID: This concerns the foreign VAT number of the buyer of the goods in the EU Member State to which you supply the goods.
- Country of origin: This is the country where the goods originally came from. In other words, the country where the goods were created, manufactured or where they have undergone the last substantial, economically justified adaptation or processing.

In the field Nature of transaction, you must now fill in the second digit of the transaction code in addition to the first digit. For more information on the fields, see the Manual Statistical Declaration.

Extra-EU trade

-The field Delivery Terms (Incoterms) will be new to you. In this field you indicate who is responsible for the costs of transport and insurance of the goods.
- For commodity flow 1 and 2, the field Customs Regulation is now also applicable. In this field, you indicate which requested regulation and previous regulation applies to the customs declaration.
-For commodity flow 3, the field Container is now also applicable. In this field, you indicate whether transport is by container or not.

Consolidated declaration

From 2022 onwards, the report obligation will be imposed on the VAT number of the fiscal unity for VAT (btw). This unit must submit one monthly declaration for all business units / underlying operating companies; the declaration does not have to be broken down. We state the structure of the company, as known to us, in the application IDEP+. Many companies already submit consolidated declarations in other surveys, but the underlying operating companies in this survey may not correspond with those of other surveys.

Declarations are automatically available

Depending on your obligations, IDEP+ automatically provides you with one or two declarations per month as of the 17th of the month. You can no longer create a declaration yourself.

Period to submit your declaration

Your declaration(s) will be automatically provided on the 17th of the reporting month every month. If you want to collect the data before the 17th of the reporting month, you can do so in an example file. You can then import this file. You can submit your declaration until the 10th working day of the following month.

Third party

In 2022, the third party is no longer automatically authorised. When you receive the letter stating that you are obliged to report as of January 2022, you can authorise a third party. You can also choose to inform the third party about this survey yourself and pass on the login codes. You remain ultimately responsible for the statistical declaration.

Corrections

After a declaration has been sent via IDEP+ it is possible to correct the declaration afterwards. The already completed and submitted declaration can be released, after which the data can be corrected. The declaration must then be re-sent to Statistics Netherlands. It is also possible to provide an explanation of the changes. For example, it is possible to indicate whether it concerns the processing of a credit note or the correction of an error. It is not obligatory to provide a comment about the correction.
Code lists and changes in commodity codes
You can use the code lists and the table with changes in commodity codes (XLS) to send in your data. The code lists and table for 2022 have not yet been published. We will post them here in December 2021. The 2021 versions can still be consulted: Code lists and the table Changes in commodity codes for 2021 (XLS).
