Import Filing: CHIEF/CDS – Automates your UK import declarations

Import Filing: CHIEF/CDS

Process your UK imports from the EU and worldwide

Full customs requirements apply to your UK imports from the EU and third countries. To master the process, you need a customs solution for your UK locations. Unless you want to hire a third-party provider to clear your imports, Import Filing: CHIEF/CDS from AEB is the perfect software support tool for your customs team. The software is tailored to the UK’s new CDS e-customs system, but it also runs under the earlier CHIEF system.

AEB works with CSP badges from Pentant and MCP.

Functionalities for UK import declarations with CHIEF/CDS

Send import declaration directly to HRMC

Save time and money on your UK imports. Send your import declarations from Import Filing: CHIEF/CDS directly to the new Customs Declarations System (CDS) of British customs (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, HMRC) or to the earlier system CHIEF. HRMC requires an entry summary declaration or simplified declaration, which must be presented upon arrival of the goods in the UK. After that, it’s necessary to submit either a Supplementary Declaration Import (SDI) or full declaration. Import Filing: CHIEF/CDS provides support with the import declaration in both the normal and Customs Freight Simplified Procedures (CFSP). The software also receives and processes messages from HRMC, of course, including the Single Administrative Document (SAD) and the Customs Response Message.

NCTS: transit procedure included

After Brexit, the importance of the New Computerized Transit System (NCTS) in goods traffic with the UK will increase dramatically. For those with the appropriate authorizations, NCTS makes it possible to move uncleared goods to Ireland or to inland customs offices or customs warehouses, for example, thereby bypassing the expected congestion at the border customs offices. Import Filing: CHIEF/CDS lets you submit or discharge NCTS procedures.
