HMRC have introduced their new CDS (Customs Declaration Service) platform for clearance declarations, which replaces CHIEF (Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight) for customs entries. Please look below at some of the key requirements that will affect you:


What do I need to do?

There are a few things you could/should be working on to prepare for CDS:


  • To enable F.S. Mackenzie Ltd to use your deferment account on declarations, customers MUST authorise our EORI Number GB 248054658000 Online via your Government Gateway account under deferment options.

  • The Flexible Accounting System (FAS) is replaced with the New Cash Accounts for CDS declarations. Once registered for CDS you will be automatically issued with a cash account. Pay funds into your own cash account and authorise F.S. Mackenzie Ltd to use the account on your behalf (or use the option of Immediate payments).
