Customs Duty and Intrastat are two important aspects of international trade that businesses need to be aware of when importing or exporting goods in the EU. Customs Duty is a tax imposed on goods imported or exported from Malta. It is typically calculated as a percentage of the value of the goods being traded. Importers and exporters are responsible for paying any customs duty that is due. Intrastat is the system used for collecting statistics on the trade of goods between EU member states. Businesses engaged in trade between EU member states are required to submit periodic Intrastat declarations providing details of their trade activity. Intrastat is important as it gives an insight on the trade of goods between EU member states.
