COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 3046/92 of 22 October 1992 laying down provisions implementing and amending Council Regulation (EEC) No 3330/91 on the statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3330/91 of 7 November 1991 on the statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States (1), and in particular Article 30 thereof,

Whereas, with a view to establishing the statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States, the field of application of the Intrastat system should be precisely defined in relation to both the goods to be included and those to be excluded;

Whereas the date from which the intra-Community operator shall in practice comply with his obligations to supply information must be determined; whereas the extent of the obligations of the third party to whom the party responsible for providing the information may transfer that task should be defined;

Whereas certain of the rules to be complied with by the departments concerned must be specified in detail in particular with a view to efficient management of the registers of intra-Community operation; whereas it is useful to specify the provisions relating to certain fiscal aspects of statistical information;

Whereas there should be additions to the definition of the data to be reported and to the arrangements for reporting such data;

Whereas a list should be drawn up of the goods to be excluded from the statistical returns relating to the trading of goods;

Whereas account should be taken initially of existing simplified procedures and of the special requirements of certain sectors;

Whereas the amendments to Council Directive 77/388/EEC (2) by Directive 91/680/EEC (3) require certain provisions of Regulation (EEC) No 3330/91 to be adapted, pursuant to the first indent of Article 33 thereof;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on the statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

With a view to establishing the statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States, the Community and its Member States shall apply Regulation (EEC) No 3330/91, hereinafter referred to as the Basic Regulation, in accordance with the rules laid down in this Regulation.

Article 2

1. In connection with trade between the Community as constituted on 31 December 1985 and Spain or Portugal, and between those two last-mentioned Member States, the Intrastat system shall also apply to goods still liable to certain customs duties and charges having equivalent effect or which remain subject to other measures laid down by the Act of Accession.

2. The Intrastat system shall apply to the products referred to in Article 3 (1) of Council Directive 92/12/EEC (4), regardless of the form and content of the document accompanying them, when they move between the territories of the Member States.

Article 3

1. The Intrastat system shall not apply:

(a) to goods placed or obtained under the inward processing customs procedure (suspension system) or the procedure of processing under customs control;

(b) to goods circulating between parts of the statistical territory of the Community, at least one of which is not part of the territory of the Community pursuant to Council Directive 77/388/EEC.

2. The Member States shall be responsible for collecting data on the goods referred to in paragraph 1 on the basis of the customs procedures applicable to such goods.

3. If the statistical copy of the Single Administrative Document containing the data listed in Article 23 of the Basic Regulation, with the exception of the information referred to in paragraph 2 (e) of that Article, is not available, the customs departments shall at least once a month send the relevant statistical departments a periodic list of those same data by type of goods, in accordance with the arrangements agreed upon by the said departments.

4. Articles 2, 4, 8, 9, 12 (1), (3), (4), (5), (6) and (7); 13, 14, 19, 21 and 22 (3) (a) and (b), first indent, shall not apply to the goods referred to in paragraph 1.

The other provisions of this Regulation shall apply to these goods without prejudice to any customs regulations which otherwise apply.

Article 4

1. Any natural or legal person carrying out an intra-Community operation for the first time, whether the goods are arriving or being dispatched, shall become responsible for providing the required information within the meaning of Article 20 (5) of the Basic Regulation.

2. The party referred to in paragraph 1 shall provide the data on his intra-Community operations via the periodic declarations referred to in Article 13 of the Basic Regulation as from the month during which the assimilation threshold is exceeded, in accordance with the provisions relating to the threshold which become applicable to him.

The Member States shall determine the deadline for transmission in line with their particular administrative organization.

3. When the VAT registration number of a party responsible for providing the information is amended as a result of a change of ownership, name, address, legal status or similar change which does not affect his intra-Community operations to a significant extent, the rule defined in paragraph 1 need not be applied to the party in question at the time of the change. It shall remain subject to the statistical obligations to which it was subject before the change.

Article 5

1. The third party referred to in Article 9 (1) of the Basic Regulation is hereinafter referred to as the declaring third party.

2. The declaring third party shall provide the competent national departments with the following information:

(a) in accordance with Article 6 (1), the information necessary:

- to identify himself,

- to identify each of the parties responsible for providing the information who have transferred this task to him;

(b) for each of the parties responsible for providing information, the data required by the Basic Regulation and in implementation thereof.

Article 6

1. The information necessary to identify an intra-Community operator within the meaning of Article 10 of the Basic Regulation shall be the following:

- full name of the person or firm,

- full address including post code,

- under the circumstances laid down in Article 10 (6) of the Basic Regulation, the VAT registration number.

However, the statistical departments referred to in Article 10 (1) of the Basic Regulation may dispense with one or more of the abovementioned items of information or, under circumstances to be determined by them, exempt the intra-Community operators from providing them.

In the Member States referred to in Article 10 (3) of the Basic Regulation, the information which serves to identify an intra-Community operator shall be supplied to the abovementioned statistical departments by the tax authorities referred to in the said Article as and when it becomes available to the latter, unless there is an agreement to the contrary between the departments concerned.

2. The minimum of list data to be recorded in the register of intra-Community operators, within the meaning of Article 10 of the Basic Regulation, shall contain, for each intra-Community operator, the following:

(a) the year and month of entry in the register;

(b) the information necessary to identify the operator as laid down in paragraph 1;

(c) where applicable, whether the operator is the consignor, consignee or declarant, or, as from 1 January 1993, a party responsible for providing information or a declaring third party, upon either consignment or receipt; in the Member States referred to in Article 10 (3) of the Basic regulation, the information stipulated in paragraph 1 of the present Article shall show whether each operator in question is a consignor or a consignee;

(d) in the case of a consignor or consignee or, as from 1 January 1993, a party responsible for providing information, the total value of his intra-Community operations, by month and by flow, together with, as from that same date, the value referred to in Article 11 (3) of the Basic Regulation; however, this information need not be recorded:

- prior to 1993, in those Member States referred to in Article 10 (3) of the Basic Regulation,

- if the checking of the information recorded as statistics using the information referred to in Article 11 (3) of the Basic Regulation and the functioning of the statistical thresholds referred to in Article 28 of the said Regulation are organized separately from the management of the register of intra-Community operators.

The competent national departments may record other data in the register in accordance with their requirements.

Article 7

With a view to implementing Article 10 (6) of the Basic Regulation, the case where responsibility for the information, for given operations, lies not with the operator as a legal entity per se but with a constituent part of this entity, such as a branch office, a kind-of-activity unit or local unit, may be considered a justified exception.

Article 8

In the lists referred to in Article 11 (1) of the Basic Regulation, the tax authorities responsible shall mention intra-Community operators who, as a result of a scission, merger or cessation of activity during the period under review, will no longer appear on the said lists.

Article 9

1. The party responsible for providing information shall transmit the data required under the Basic Regulation and in implementation thereof:

(a) in accordance with the Community provision in force;

(b) direct to the competent national departments or via the collection offices which the Member States have set up for this or for other statistical or administrative purposes;

(c) for a given reference period, at his discretion:

- either by means of a single declaration, within a time limit which the competent national departments shall lay down in their instructions to the parties responsible for providing information and which shall be between the fifth and the tenth working day following the end of that period,

- or by means of several part-declarations; in this case, the competent national departments may require agreement to be reached with them on the frequency of transmission and deadlines, but the last part-declaration must be transmitted within the time limit laid down under the first indent above.

2. By way of derogation from paragraph 1, a party responsible for providing information who benefits from exemption by virtue of application of the assimilation threshold provided for in Article 28 (4) of the Basic Regulation must, when transmitting the information, conform only to the regulations of the tax authorities responsible.

3. Pursuant to Article 34 of the Basic Regulation, the provisions of this Article relating to the periodicity of the declaration shall not prevent the conclusion of an agreement providing for the supply of data in real time, when the data are transmitted electronically.

4. By way of derogation to paragraph 1 above, in those Member States where the periodic statistical declaration is the same as the periodic tax declaration, the provisions relating to the transmission of the statistical declaration shall be drawn up in line with Community or national tax regulations.

Article 10

In the medium for the information, the Member States whose statistical territory is described in the nomenclature of countries annexed to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1736/75 (5) shall be designated by either alphabetical or numerical codes, as follows:

France: FR or 001, Belgium and Luxembourg: BL or 002, Netherlands: Nl or 003, Germany: DE or 004, Italy: IT or 005, United Kingdom: GB or 006, Ireland: IE or 007, Denmark: DK or 008, Greece: GR or 009, Portugal: PT or 010, Spain: ES or 011.

(b) 'supplementary units' shall mean the units measuring quantity, other than the units measuring mass expressed in kilograms; they must be mentioned in accordance with the information set out in the current version of the combined nomenclature, opposite the sub-headings concerned, the list of which is published in Part I 'Preliminary provisions' of the said nomenclature.

Article 12

1. The value of the goods, as referred to in Article 23 (1) (d) of the Basic Regulation, shall be given as follows:

- by type of goods, the statistical value,

- by statistical declaration, the amount invoiced.

2. The statistical value shall be fixed:

- upon dispatch, on the basis of the taxable amount to be determined the taxation purposes in accordance with Directive 77/388/EEC for deliveries of goods specified under section A (1) (a) and, where appropriate, for the operations specified under section A (1) (b) of Article 11 of the same Directive, minus, however, any taxes deductible because of the dispatch; it shall, on the other hand, include transport and insurance costs relating to that part of the journey which takes place on the statistical territory of the Member State of dispatch,

- upon arrival, on the basis of the taxable amount to be determined for taxation purposes, in accordance with Article 28e of the Directive referred to above, for acquisition of goods, minus, however, taxes due because of the release for consumption and transport and insurance costs relating to that part of the journey which takes place on the statistical territory of the Member State of arrival.

The statistical value must be declared in accordance with the first subparagraph, even if the taxable amount does not have to be determined for taxation purposes.

For goods resulting from processing operations, the statistical value shall be established as if those goods had been produced entirely in the Member State of processing.

3. The amount invoiced shall be the total amount (excluding VAT) of invoices or documents serving as invoices relating to all the goods included in a statistical declaration.

4. The party responsible for providing information may indicate the invoiced amount broken down by type of goods.

By way of derogation to paragraph 1, the Member States may require the invoiced amount to be broken down by type of goods. In this case, they shall calculate the statistical value and exempt the party responsible for providing the statistical information from the need to mention it. However, those responsible for providing the information may be required to supply information on ancillary costs on a sample basis.

The second subparagraph shall apply either to all parties required to transmit the periodic declaration referred to in Article 13 (1) of the Basic Regulation or solely to those parties who benefit from the application of simplification thresholds.

5. The Member States may exercise the option laid down in the second subparagraph of paragraph 4, even if their particular administrative organization prevents them from taking the simplification measure which, by virtue of this subparagraph, must accompany the exercise of this option, namely, exemption from the requirement to mention the statistical value.

In the instructions relating to the statistical declaration to the parties responsible for providing information, the technical reasons why both the statistical value and the invoiced amount must be mentioned, by type of goods, shall be indicated in advance.

The Member States shall transmit a copy of these instructions to the Commission before 1 November 1992 and, thereafter, whenever they are updated.

6. In the case of work under contract, the amount invoiced shall be the amount entered in the accounts for the work, including any ancillary costs. It shall be mentioned only in the case of the dispatch and the arrival which follow the contract work.
