Deloitte is launching a new digital platform called CustomsClear to support businesses in submitting their own customs declarations. Links on how to register to use this platform and for more information are available on the International Trade hub in the area.
CustomsClear is an easy-to-use digital platform that integrates directly with HMRC’s Customs Declaration System (CDS) to enable businesses to submit their own customs declarations for goods imported and exported between the EU and GB. Businesses will be able to submit, track, manage and view duties payable all in one place.

The platform has been developed specifically for businesses, to make the declarations process simpler. There is no need to pay for additional customs brokers or intermediaries to complete customs declarations – making it a cost effective and convenient solution for many businesses

Any business who buys goods from EU countries and brings them to the UK or moves goods from the UK to the EU on a regular basis.

As long as your goods are to be transported using RoRo by truck, crossing the border by ferry or Eurotunnel and intended for free circulation (this means that they are imported and cleared by customs to be sold freely within the UK or EU) then CustomsClear is the product to help you complete your customs declarations.
