CDS - The New Customs Declaration Service
Online: £189 +VAT per person
The Customs Declaration Services (CDS) has now replaced CHIEF for handling imports, with exports following in March. Every business that trades internationally must be signed up for CDS, so it is crucial to understand the new system in order to continue working well with your agents and trading effectively.
This highly practical 90-minute course will provide you with a step-by-step guide to using the CDS dashboard and will clearly outline the various new options and features available to you. Importantly, it will help you understand the new customs declarations and how they differ from the CHIEF C88s - highlighting the key boxes you will need to be aware of.
The course is presented by our international trade expert, David Hooper, who has already helped many businesses adapt their systems in readiness for the changes.
“Good coverage on what we need to watch for as we transition from CHIEF to CDS. Handy tips on what we need to provide to agents. Thorough answers to questions asked.”
“Really informative and very straight forward - I wasn't baffled with the usual customs jargon. As a company who has an agent to complete declarations, I very much appreciated the accurate information.”
