Transitioning To CDS – YouTube Tutorials

Further to our recent communications regarding CDS, HMRC has introduced a new series of videos to help you make declarations on the Customs Declarations Service. This series is a set of 9 videos on the Customs Clearance Instructions for Imports covering:

Identifying the declaration category

Identifying the commodity code

Identifying the procedure code

Permitted additional procedure codes

Identify the additional procedure code

Additional information statement codes

Specific document and reference codes

Reviewing completion guidance

Completing the customs declaration

These videos are also available on the CDS hub on our website: /transitioning-to-cds

BIFA is aware that many importers are unaware of these changes so hope that these videos will support them in preparing for these upcoming changes.
As more videos are released we will advise as applicable.
