New date for CDS exports announced by HMRC

HMRC have announced on 15 December 2022 an extension to the
requirement for traders to migrate from CHIEF to CDS. The new planned date
for CDS exports will now be 1st December 2023.

With this announcement, exporters have until 30 November
2023 to move across to the Customs Declaration Service (CDS), 8 months later
than previously announced.

The new deadline replaces the former planned date of the 1st
April 2023.

According to Sarah Hartley, Director of Border Change
Delivery at HMRC,
“The extra time also allows businesses and stakeholders more time to prepare
their customers and software products for the November deadline”.

HMRC will provide further information about the
timeline for CDS exports by the end of January 2023.
