Change in NCTS5 Implementation Date Announced

by | Oct 11, 2023

The Common Transit Convention (CTC) authority has extended the transition period for NCTS Phase 5 due to requests from several countries and industry submissions. After careful consideration, the UK has decided to adopt this extension, and the new implementation date for NCTS5 in the UK is now set for 1 July 2024.

This decision acknowledges industry efforts made for the original implementation date of 16 November 2023. However, it is clear that stakeholders prefer a later date, to give industry additional time to prepare. The new implementation date has been coordinated with industry stakeholders and takes into account key Government project delivery dates. TAXUD and the CTC have been informed of this change.

What to Do Next:

  • Continue using the current NCTS system until NCTS5 is implemented on 1 July 2024.
  • The HMRC Trader Test environment will switch to Transitional mode on 11 October 2023, as planned.
  • Those developing software should align their efforts with the revised implementation date.
  • Regular email updates on NCTS5 will be provided to stakeholders to support their preparations.
