While the deadline may seem far away it's important to start the preparations now. After the deadline, exporters will no longer be able to make export declarations on CHIEF or the National Export System (NES). From this time, businesses must submit all their export declarations on CDS.

This webinar covers:

  • The final stages of the CHIEF withdrawal and lessons learnt from imports
  • Important steps you need to take to get ready for CDS – whether you’re self-filing or using a broker acting on behalf of a trader
  • Key differences between CHIEF and CDS
  • Information you will need to submit declarations on CDS
