UK ROADSHOW TO HELP BUSINESSES PREPARE FOR NEW UK CUSTOMS DECLARATION SERVICE (CDS)

On 10th April, the British International Freight Association (BIFA) reported that 3 organisations will be running a series of seminars ahead of August’s phased launch of the Customs Declaration System (CDS), the system set to completely replace the existing system for Customs declarations in the UK.  Agency Sector Management (ASM), BIFA, and HMRC are combining efforts to offer advice and guidance to businesses affected by the implementation of the new CDS system.  The have been organised in response to concerns about the readiness of the new system, and to provide companies with the opportunity to fully understand what CDS is, why it is being introduced, how it will impact their businesses, and when the system will be fully launched.  They are being held at a number of locations across the UK during June and July, with the first taking place on June 12th.
