Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS – UK export declarations made easy 

Exporting goods from the UK to the EU is subject to customs declarations since Brexit. Wherever you are exporting to from your UK location, Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS from AEB is the perfect solution, automating and accelerating your UK export declarations and processes.

From USD 133 / month

Your direct line to HMRC

Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS transmits your export declarations directly to the CHIEF or CDS e-customs system of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and provides a direct interface for all incoming messages – releases, endorsements of exit, orders for a customs examination, etc. Paperwork such as the export accompanying document (EAD) or proof of exit (S8) can be easily printed out from the export transaction or forwarded by email. 
Export Filing optimizes export processes in the UK

Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS handles all major special export processes

One software for all customs procedures

In addition to the normal procedure (“full export”), several special procedures are used in the UK: PSA for supplementary declarations, C21, EXS, and others. Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS has your back with all major special export procedures – just leave the details to us.

NCTS included

The NCTS procedure is particularly attractive for post-Brexit transactions, since it lets you clear customs far away from the overburdened border customs offices. In Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS you can submit NCTS transit procedures, receive the necessary transit accompanying document, then print it out – all from the single interface of Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS. Your goods roll right past the congestion at the border.

How quickly can I get started with Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS? 

You can get up and running with Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS in very little time. You don’t need to take care of any preliminary formalities with the customs authorities. Do you want to integrate Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS as a plug-in or interface into your IT system environment and processes? Or do you need training for your employees beforehand? If so, be sure to allow enough time.

How long does it take to integrate Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS into our existing system? 

That depends on which ERP system you are using and the extent of the desired integration and automation. Depending on your particular circumstances, the software could be integrated into your processes within a few days. An AEB expert will also be happy to assist you.

What options does Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS offer for integrating customs clearance into our systems and processes? 

Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS can be addressed through an API (web service) and easily integrated by your own IT department or IT system vendor. That means it’s possible to link common systems such as SAP®, Microsoft Dynamics, IFS, Infor, or proAlpha.

Can Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS be integrated into our existing SAP® system? 

Yes. Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS can be easily integrated into SAP® ERP ECC6.0 and SAP® S4/HANA. AEB offers a plug-in for this. Integration into any other ERP or logistics system is also possible.

What happens if the customs requirements change? 

As soon as changes from the customs authorities take effect, they are available in Export Filing: CHIEF/CDS. The software is automatically updated to reflect the change. No further action is required on your part.

We’re already using Export Filing from AEB in one country. Is there any advantage to having our UK offices work with Export Filing as well?

There are several advantages to using Export Filing for different countries. First of all, your IT department will be happy to have only one software program to manage. But it also makes it easier to set up a centralized customs department. We have customers who run their customs clearance operations in the UK but have their central customs department in another country. Customs experts find it much more transparent if all offices work with the same family of software. This enhances transparency and makes it easier to prepare internal audits and customs audits.
