CDS Export Deadline Rolled Until Next Year

August 24, 2023

HMRC have confirmed that the deadline for export declarations needing to be made on the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) has been delayed until March 30th.

CDS is custom’s new software for the electronic handling of the declaration process and replaces the 30 year old CHIEF system. Import processes were moved from CHIEF to CDS last September, with exports previously scheduled for March this year.

However, the changeover for exports was moved until November and now further delayed until March 2024.

It should be noted that some high volume declarants will be phased onto the CDS system from November, with these businesses being contacted directly.

According to the announcement, HMRC have listened to feedback and decided that implementing a phased approach will be the best way forward.

The full HMRC notice can be found on the gov.uk website HERE.

If you need any further information on how CDS will impact your business, then please contact a member of the team.
