Customs Delay CDS Exports Until November

December 16, 2022

The CDS Customs platform replaced CHIEF for import declarations from 30th September, but the Export transition is now delayed from March 2023 until November 2023.

Customs have now confirmed this with a news story on their website dated 15th December. The key takeaway points are as follows:

“Exporters will have more time to move across to the Customs Declaration Service, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has announced.

After 30 November 2023, businesses will need to use CDS to make export declarations for goods they send out of the UK, as they already do for import declarations.

We have moved the deadline to enable us to spend more time working with industry in delivering and testing critical functionality as well as the support needed to help declarants move across to the new system.

The extra time also allows businesses and stakeholders more time to prepare their customers and software products for the November deadline.

HMRC will provide further information about the timeline for CDS exports by the end of January 2023. There is more information about using the Customs Declaration Service on GOV.UK.”
