Configuring Data Selection and Issue

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Configure data selection for Intrastat declarations

Cross-System Processing of Intrastat Declarations

Unlike in Compliance Management and Customs Management, there is no document replication for Intrastat in SAP GTS. The declaration-relevant data extracted from the feeder system are instead stored on the database in SAP GTS. The system automatically retrieves these data for the Intrastat declaration.

The SAP ECC feeder system uses the following programs to extract document data for the transfer to SAP GTS for Intrastat declarations. These programs collect the relevant data from purchasing documents and billing documents respectively:

  • Intrastat: Transfer Documents for Receipts (transaction code /SAPSLL/IS_MM)

  • Intrastat: Transfer Documents for MM Returns and MM Credit Memos (transaction code /SAPSLL/IS_MM_RET)

  • Intrastat: Transfer Documents for Dispatches (transaction code /SAPSLL/IS_SD)

  • Intrastat: Transfer Documents for Inter-company Billing (SD) (transaction code /SAPSLL/IS_SD_IB)

In an SAP S/4HANA feeder system, use the Transfer Dispatches and Customer Returns and Transfer Receipts and Returns to Supplier transactions (transaction codes /SAPSLL/IS_SD and /SAPSLL/IS_MM respectively) for data selection, or schedule the corresponding programs for background processing.

If you previously submitted your Intrastat declarations from your SAP ECC feeder system, and have therefore already defined relevant data such as the official keys for the nature of transaction or the mode of transport at the border, the feeder system can include this information in the data extracts transferred to SAP GTS. Delivery Customizing for SAP GTS provides the relevant official codes for Intrastat declarations in all Member States supported.

Definition of Data to be Reported

Numbering schemes represent nomenclatures for different purposes in international trade. Together with numbering scheme contents, they serve as frameworks for the manual maintenance or the upload of different types of codes, and for the assignment of these codes to products (classification).

In Intrastat declarations, you have to specify the goods received from or dispatched to another Member State using the appropriate CN codes. If your company uses SAP GTS for submitting export declarations or transit declaration to customs offices in the EU, the CN has already been mapped for Customs Management in the form of the numbering scheme EUSTA and the numbering scheme content EUSTA_CT (or customer-specific copies).

In delivery Customizing for SAP GTS, you can find the legal regulation ENSEU (Numbering System - European Union) provided for Intrastat declarations (menu path: SAP Global Trade Services, edition for SAP HANAGeneral SettingsLegal RegulationsDefine Legal Regulation). This legal regulation is already activated for most of the Member States (menu path: SAP Global Trade Services, edition for SAP HANAGeneral SettingsLegal RegulationsActivate Legal Regulations at Country/Region Group Level and SAP Global Trade Services, edition for SAP HANAIntrastatActivate Legal Regulations).

The numbering scheme EUSTA is assigned to the legal regulation ENSEU, so that the classification carried out for customs processing can also be used for Intrastat declarations and vice versa (menu path: SAP Global Trade Services, edition for SAP HANAGeneral SettingsNumbering SchemesAssign Numbering Schemes to Legal Regulations, Assign Scheme for Commodity Codes folder).

In SAP GTS, most of the codes to be used in Intrastat declarations are predefined in the delivery Customizing. However, you should check these codes regularly and update them, if necessary (menu path: SAP Global Trade Services, edition for SAP HANAIntrastatBasic Data). Some of the codes are identical in all Member States, others are specific to individual Member States.

The country codes predefined in delivery Customizing for SAP GTS are required for indicating the reporting country, the respective partner countries of departure or destination, and the country of origin. The codes to be used in Intrastat declarations may differ from the ISO 3166 country codes defined in database table T005 (Countries).

Something similar applies to the region codes stored in database table T005S (Taxes: Region (Province) Key). If the region codes to be used in Intrastat declarations differ from the region codes defined in database table T005S, a conversion is required. The delivery Customizing for SAP GTS therefore provides the necessary code assignments in the Define Exceptions for Conversion of Regions view (menu path: SAP Global Trade Services, edition for SAP HANAIntrastatBasic DataRegionsDefine Exceptions for Conversion of Regions).
