The Czech Republic customs law requires that companies report purchases and sales to and from other EU countries on a monthly basis. To meet this requirement, you can generate and export an Intrastat declaration report in XML format. You will need to collect the required information from your sales and purchase orders.

Prior to 1.1.2008, three formats, ASCII, CSV, and XML, could be used for the Intrastat report. However, at this time, XML formatting is required, and the report is submitted through PVS, an on-line reporting tool used by the Statistical Office.
