Are you an international trader? It's time to make the move to the CDS (Customs Declaration Service).

There are less than two months to go until all import declarations need to be made on the CDS (Customs Declarations Service). The HMRC is urging traders to move across now ahead of the 30 September deadline.

Registration can take several weeks, so beginning this process early is the best way to avoid disruption to trade.

For further information and support on how to move across to the CDS, visit: GOV.UK | Trader checklist – moving to the Customs Declaration Service

There is also a Trader Dress Rehearsal service for businesses to practise using real information, allowing you to understand the service without risk of error. Visit: GOV.UK | Using the Trader Dress Rehearsal service
