Transitioning To CDS – YouTube Tutorials

This is a move away from CHIEF, which is primarily a data/customs entry processing system to CDS which includes processing customs entries. 

However, it is a much broader customs system which includes setting up and managing most elements of a trader’s customs processes in a digital environment.

Obviously, there are features and functions which will be new to members and HMRC have released the following videos, to guide Members and their customs through these processes: 

How to subscribe to the Customs Declaration Service – YouTube
How to set up a Direct Debit instruction on the Customs Declaration Service (one signature) – YouTube

How to set up a Direct Debit instruction on the Customer Declaration Service (multiple signatures) – YouTube

How to set up a standing authority on the Customs Declaration Service (one signature). – YouTube

How to use the secure file upload service on the Customs Declaration Service – YouTube

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.
