New UK Customs platform known as the ‘Customs Declaration System’ (CDS)
05/07/2022

Do you import or export goods? If so, are you ready for CDS? The UK government has developed a new customs platform known as the Customs Declaration System (CDS). This will replace the existing platform, Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight system (CHIEF). The new system will be linked to your organisation’s Government Gateway account, allowing you to see various aspects of your import and export process for example, pending VAT amounts and outstanding deferment amounts.

Who does it apply to? All importers and exporters who participate in customs declarations in the UK. CDS registration is mandatory for all importers and exporters. The registration process, which will take around 5 minutes, can be found at: www.gov.uk/guidance/get-access-to-the-customs-declaration-service To ensure a seamless transaction please register as soon as possible.
