In February the International Chamber of Commerce made changes to their International Commercial Terms (Incoterms). As far as Intrastat is concerned this relates to Delivery Terms.

The changes saw the introduction of two new terms:

  • DAT (Delivered at Terminal) to replace the term DEQ
  • DAP (Delivered at Place) to replace the terms DAF, DES and DDU.

The old terms will no longer be valid after 31st December 2011, and from January 2012 businesses must use the new DAT and DAP terms on all declarations.
