Member Event: Moving to the Customs Declaration Service

BIFA “Town Hall” events will be taking place on Monday 25th April at 10:30-11:30 and on Wednesday 27th April at 2pm-3pm.

HM Revenue and Customs recently announced that the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) will replace the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system from 31st March 2023.  Services on CHIEF will be withdrawn in two stages: 

  • After 30th September 2022 the ability to make import declarations on CHIEF will end and you must move all your import declarations to CDS. 
  • After 31st March 2023 the ability to make export declarations on CHIEF and the National Export System (NES) will end and you must move all your export declarations to CDS. 

If you haven’t already, now is the time to start preparing for how and when you will move across to CDS.

To help you and your business prepare for this change, HMRC are working with BIFA and would like to invite you to attend one of two overview sessions. These sessions will both cover:

  • The phased withdrawal of CHIEF
  • Key steps you need to take to get ready as a declarant
  • Key steps you need to take to get ready as somebody who uses a customs broker to make declarations on their behalf
  • Additional support available from HMRC

There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the sessions, and answers will be provided following each event.
