Customs Declaration Service (CDS) Update

Date May 01, 2019 Location Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce
Customs Declaration Service (CDS) Update

John Griffiths the local HMRC  International Trade Development Liaison Officer(ITDLO)  will provide an update on CDS.

The Customs Declaration Service (CDS) will replace the current Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) service. This is the computer system currently used to process Customs declarations .

 Therefore if you are currently importing goods from, or exporting goods, to countries outside the EU, then you or your freight forwarder will be using CHIEF to :

  • process declarations for goods entering and leaving the UK or EU through ports and airports
  • calculate and pay the correct duty and taxes
  • complete customs information electronically

These functions will be available on CDS but there will be differences with the new service.

The presentation will feature:

  • an overview of CDS
  • a walkthrough of the first type of declaration made via CDS

and details of new information that may be required from Importers and by their freight forwarders in order to complete a declaration on their behalf.
