HMRC announces another extension for CDS exports move

The current plans to move exports from CHIEF to CDS has now been extended till 2024, , after HMRC listened to industry feedback. The new approach though will be divided in two phases.

The first one will have HMRC and software developers supporting selected high-volume declarants making the move CDS for exports by Thursday 30 November 2023; and the second stage will see all other businesses move to CDS for exports by Saturday 30 March 2024.

This new approach will enable HMRC and delivery partners to build on the existing IT testing as well as undertake additional performance analysis while businesses with the existing IT functionality start to migrate. It will also enable HMRC and their delivery partners to better support export declarants to make a smooth migration to CDS.
