CDS Clearance UK

What is CDS Clearance?

CDS (Customs Declaration Service) is the new replacement system for the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system that was previously used in the UK for customs clearance. It allows Customs Agents and private individuals to create and manage import and export declarations in the UK. The two systems will run alongside each other whilst companies transition over to the CDS system and CHIEF will continue to handle Export declarations whilst CDS handles the Import Declarations.

Why Hire a Customs Agent for CDS Clearance in the UK?

When transporting goods, or in some cases travelling to the UK, it is now mandatory to submit Customs Declarations to HMRC (Her Majesty´s Revenue and Customs). All relevant VAT, Duty or Excise must be paid to legally import goods. Each product is assigned an international code known as the HS or Commodity code. This details the specific regulations for the goods for each country.

All goods moving internationally between Europe and the rest of the world (including UK) require CDS customs clearance.

Import and Export Customs Declarations detail:

  • The weight
  • Commodity code
  • Value
  • Description of the goods
  • Taxes that have been paid to HMRC.

When unfamiliar with Import and Export procedures, completing the paperwork and paying the correct taxes can be laborious and time consuming. Our highly trained and experienced Customs Agents can handle this process for you – saving you time and money.
