HMRC What you need to know about the Customs Declaration Service Seminar

Book your place

HMRC seminar unveiling the new Customs Declaration Service controlling all UK exports and imports.

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 by HMRC to record the movement of goods by land, air and sea and
process all Customs Declarations.

If your business is currently importing goods from, or
exporting goods to, countries outside the EU, then you or
your freight forwarder will be using CHIEF to:
> process customs 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.


> Introducing the CDS
> A walkthrough of the first type of declaration made via CDS
> New information required from businesses and their carriers in order to complete a customs declaration


Businesses already importing or exporting outside the EU and subject to the pending negotiations on leaving the EU, businesses trading solely in the EU, where a customs declaration currently does not apply.
