Get Ready for CDS for Import Declarations from End of September 2022
HMRC will be closing its Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system on 31 March 2023. From this date, all businesses will need to declare goods through the Customs Declaration Service (CDS). Ahead of the 31 March 2023 complete closure, services on CHIEF will be withdrawn in two stages:
30 September 2022: import declarations close on CHIEF
31 March 2023: export declarations close on CHIEF / National Exports System (NES)
Allseas customers who appoint us to handle their brokerage requirements will be migrated to CDS in the coming weeks.
