If you are a UK business importing/exporting goods from the EU you need to declare your shipments to HMRC.

Our consultants can advise you on the customs declaration process, answer any questions you have, and review your documents or forms for submission. Our customs team provide you with the latest advice to ensure your compliance with HMRC and avoid any delays and extra costs to your business.
By definition, Custom Declaration Service (CDS) is the new reporting system used to process declarations for goods entering and leaving the UK or EU through ports and airports, with complete customs information submitted electronically. You’ll need access to the Customs Declaration Service so you can get import VAT statements and certificates to help complete your VAT Return.
HMRC began a phased launch of the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) in August 2018. CDS will replace the existing Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) system, initially dealing with a small number of import declarations. A wider scope of import declarations will be handled by CDS. Export declarations are due to follow towards the end of the year.
