HMRC have this week confirmed the deadline for CDS export declarations has been delayed again, this time until March 30th 2024.
CDS is the new software system for handling the customs declaration process and is already handling imports, which were transferred from the CHIEF system in September 22.
Exports were due to move over to CDS in March 23, but that date was moved to November 23 prior to this week’s announcement that there will be a further delay until March 24.
The new target does not apply to everybody, since some high volume declarants are being phased onto CDS from November, these businesses will be contacted shortly by HMRC.
