Intrastat AT – returns to be reported as 2 Dispatch

Dear Colleagues,

We are experiencing problems with Intrastat in our Austrian subsidiary. We use the process of direct shipments (sales order taken in Austrian sales org, customer in Austria, delivery from our plant in Poland, Austria invoices the customer, Poland creates an intercompany invoice to Austria). If such deliveries are returned, the return order is created with reference to the original sales order, the goods are physically returned to Poland, Poland credits the IC invoice, Austria credits the customer.

For the Austrian intrastat report of this return the Polish IC credit note is relevant. This is visible in VI98 as ‘IRET’ but classified as ‘1 Receipt’. However, our Austrian company claims that their authorities do not accept a receipt report for returns but these should be reported as 2 Dispatch, which does make sense. Maybe it is the same in other countries, too.

How / where can we customize the system to make a return be reported as 1 Receipt or 2 Dispatch? Simply changing this value in the download screen of VI98 just has the effect that SAP comes up with an error message due to missing data.

Any advice would be helpful. Many thanks in advance.

    Intrastat is a legal report, whenever a legal requirement changes then SAP will usually make a change in the programs and provide the update with SAP notes

    For some exceptional requirements they have no standard and only explain how you could approach it like in OSS note 1171707 - Intrastat: Reporting returns as arrival and dispatch
