Update on the CDS migration for exporters
Free webinar recording
In August, the UK government announced a new timeline for when businesses need to be completing export declarations using the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) instead of the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system.
HMRC has said that it is now adopting a “new phased approach” with “selected high-volume declarants” being asked to move to CDS for exports by 30 November 2023, with all other businesses being required to use it by 30 March 2024.
In this Update on the CDS migration for exporters webinar recording, representatives from the Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT) and HMRC reviewed the new timeline and what traders can do now to prepare. The one-hour session covered:
