CDS Feedback required before June 8th

Following the CDS presentation and discussion at the National meeting recently, there were a number of items that members wanted to see included in the new system. ACITA will submit a list of such requirements to the HMRC team but before we do please could you let us know what, apart from the general declaration processing capabilities, additional features and functionality you would find beneficial and assist you in ensuring better compliance and control of your customs processes more efficiently. Some suggestions already made include: 1)      Electronic C79s – This would reduce the time for input tax recovery and would reduce the risk of postal delays. Delivery could be either by email or by the government gateway system 2)      Direct trade access to MSS data – This would allow a trader to pull a specific report for a timescale and also to manage customs compliance in real-time 3)      Smart filtering for CPC codes – This would mean that a trader would simply not be able to enter or exit a commodity code to a procedure if not authorised. The Irish customs declaration system already does this 4)      Active monitoring of guarantees – This would be a real-time monitoring of deferment accounts and potential duty guarantees.
