Feight forwarders say HMRC is acting pragmatically

The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has welcomed the latest announcement by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) of an extension to the implementation timetable of CDS – the new computer system which will replace CHIEF.

The announcement means that traders will not need to move from CHIEF to CDS by the end of September 2020 as originally scheduled and dual-running of both systems will continue with CHIEF remaining operational beyond 2020.
