Future customs procedures

Simplified import declaration

The simplified import declaration is scheduled for launch on 2 September 2024, with an implementation period that runs until 27 September 2024.

Compared to the declarations currently in use, significantly fewer data entries are required in the new simplified declarations. For example, the following data will always be required:

  • Commodity code (TARIC code)
  • Net mass
  • Country of origin

In terms of data filing, the difference between the simplified declaration and the standard declaration primarily concerns the calculation of fees.

Quota requests should still be submitted in a supplementary declaration. A simplified declaration cannot be used for IOSS (Import One Stop Shop) consignments.

Authorisation for simplified declarations

An authorisation for simplified declarations is required in advance. The authorisation should be valid for the requested procedure. Please verify the information in your authorisation. To avoid delays in your declaration flow as you start using the new simplified declarations, this information should correspond with the intended use of your authorisation If you need to modify the information in your authorisation, please request a modification in the CDS (Customs Decisions System).

Things to consider

A deadline for submitting a supplementary declaration and the transfer of fees is set when the simplified declaration is released. The simplified declaration can be submitted in advance or at the time of the release request. Late submissions of the supplementary declaration may lead to the following:

  • Consideration of a late fee
  • Consideration of tax assessment decision (now called discretionary tax assessment) and decision.
  • Imposition of a late fee, tax assessment decision and any customs surcharges.

Some data cannot be modified in the supplementary declaration – this means that you have to apply for an amendment to the simplified declaration before filing the supplementary declaration. If amendment is authorised or new data is established in a simplified declaration after release, but before the supplementary declaration is submitted, representatives who subscribe to simplified declaration data notifications will receive an update. Once the supplementary declaration is registered it is no longer possible to apply for an amendment of the simplified declaration – the two declarations are considered a single indivisible document.

The data in simplified and the supplementary declarations must be consistent. The following data should be consistent in both declarations:

Declaration header level

Declaration type, declarant, person paying customs duty, importer, authorisation, storage location for goods, tax-related data.

Goods item level

Requested and previous procedure, additional procedure, goods item number, HS subheading, number of packages, country of origin, consignment level.
