CDS Countdown – Latest Info

Customs CDS Countdown – Latest Info

 

Atlantic Pacific continue to focus on September’s major customs development, when the new CDS platform replaces CHIEF for import declarations.

We are sharing updates as we become aware, or receive detailed clarification, of changes during the build up to this important transition.

Some of the items we share will impact us and not you, some are changes that you will see when the new process arrives, but some are items that you need to do in preparation, and we will keep these in a list at the bottom of each article.

So, two more things that we want to highlight to you.

No Live Entries In CDS
Submitting import entries directly to HMRC will not be available in CDS. Currently, CHIEF allows this but specialist software will be required when CDS comes in.

Standing Deferment Authority
It is mandatory for an importer to put in place a standing authority for a broker to use their Duty Deferment Account in CDS. Even if a standing authority has previously been set up on CHIEF, the authority will need to be set up on CDS. Further information on authorising declarants to use your deferment approval number HERE.
