New Automated Export System (AES)

The new Automated Export System (AES) is going live on 21
March 2023. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Automated Export
System (AES).

Migrating from AEP to AES

Revenue’s AEP (Automated Entry Processing) system is being
replaced by the new Automated Export System (AES). The Migration Window is from
21 March 2023 to 21 May 2023. AEP will be closed to new Export Declarations
from 22 May 2023.

The new Automated Export System will replace:

  • export declarations into AEP
  • export manifests into AEP eManifest
  • indirect exports into the Trans-European Export Control

From 4 September 2023 it will no longer be possible to make
amendments to declarations lodged to AEP.  Any amendments to AEP export declarations will
have to be completed by contacting the relevant Revenue export office.
