Set up declaration types in the Belgian version


In the 2022 release wave 2, Business Central includes a redesigned Intrastat experience with extended features. If you are a new customer using version 21 or newer, you are using the new experience. For customers who upgraded from previous releases, using the new experience depends on whether your administrator has enabled the Feature Update: Replace the existing Intrastat functionality with the new Intrastat extension option on the Feature Management page. Learn more at the Set Up Intrastat Reporting article. This article describes the previous functionality.


It is not possible to use the old and new experiences in parallel. Before activating the extension in a production environment, it is recommended that you first enable and test this feature in a sandbox environment with a copy of production data. Once you activate the new Intrastat experience in your production environment, you cannot revert back to the old Intrastat functionality.

In Business Central, there are two types of declaration:

  • Simplified declaration
  • Extended declaration

The type of declaration depends on the amount of shipped or received goods. To determine the type of declaration that you should use, visit the National Bank of Belgium website.

When using the extended declaration, also, you need to set up an Incoterm in Intrastat Declaration for each shipping method. If you don't see the Incoterm in Intrastat Decl. field on the Shipment Method page, you might need to customize the page and add the field.

To set up declaration types

  1. Choose the Lightbulb that opens the Tell Me feature. icon, enter General Ledger Setup, and then choose the related link.
  2. Select the Simplified Intrastat Decl. check box to set up a simplified declaration type. Clear this field to use extended declaration.
  3. Choose the OK button.
