The CDS system, which replaces the existing Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) platform, was originally developed for importers and exporters who have to complete customs declarations when trading outside the EU. The system was also intended to meet the latest requirements of the EU’s customs code and to allow businesses to access more of their customs information in one place. Following the UK’s vote to leave the EU, HMRC prioritised work on the new system and developed contingency plans should CDS be delayed. These include refreshing the CHIEF IT infrastructure so it can be scaled to cope with processing a higher volume of customs declarations, and exploring other technology and process changes that may be required. This led to the National Audit Office stating that the revamped customs service should be ready for a no-deal outcome when the UK leaves the EU in March. Kevin Franklin, HMRC’s customs transformation programme director, said the … [Read more...] about HMRC begins rollout of new customs software to importers ahead of UK leaving EU

This week, Parliament faces some real Brexit choices. One choice is whether to demand that the Government seeks a Norway-style deal. Norway isn’t a member of the EU. But it agrees to accept all their rules; including free movement; and pays into the EU every year. But, as a non-member, Norway gets no vote. Brussels decides the rules. Norway abides by them. That is not what my electors voted for when they voted to leave. Parliament was always promised a vote on the final. But one proposal from the Lords, includes voting to reject the deal and sending the Government back with a new list of demands to extend the talks – delaying Brexit. After two years of talks, the idea of another six months or a year, before the UK leaves would be quite wrong.
