Customs Delay Export Move To CDS

December 17, 2022

 

UK Customs were due to transfer export procedures to their new CDS software in March, but they have just announced this has now been delayed until November 2023.

The CDS software replaces the CHIEF system, which has been operational for almost 30 years, and UK imports were moved to CDS in September. However, HMRC confirmed on their website last week that exporters will now have more time to prepare.

The key points in the announcement from CDS read as follows:

  • Following consultation with the border industry, exporters will now have until 30 November 2023 to move across to the Customs Declaration Service (CDS), 8 months later than previously announced.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • HMRC will provide further information about the timeline for CDS exports by the end of January 2023.
