CHIEF to CDS Migration – The Clock is Ticking, So Let Us Save You Time
In 2021, HMRC announced after nearly 30 years, the closure of its Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system by 31st March 2023, as it was felt that the system was no longer fit for purpose.
The CHIEF closure is planned in two stages;
30th September 2022 – Import declarations to close on CHIEF
31st March 2023 – Export declarations to close on CHIEF and the National Exports System (NES)
The closure of CHIEF means that you and your business will need to be up to speed with all of the changes, any new legislation coming into play and of course using the new CDS system.
By now you should have;
- Requested your Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number
- Have a Unique Taxpayer Reference
- Registered your Government Gateway account details
- A clear understanding of the changes to the Import and Export Tariff and what they mean to your business
As your compliance experts we are committed to making the migration from CHIEF to CDS as smooth as possible for you, which is why are here to offer sound advice and guidance every step of the way.
