Focus on CDS for exports

In our weekly Community Meet-up, we focus this week on CDS for Exports, the new UK system for making export declarations. This system, which made the news last week, is a key topic in customs and global trade. To give you a brief overview, CDS for Exports is designed to streamline the export process and make it more efficient. The Customs Declaration Service (CDS) is an essential tool for UK businesses to comply with customs procedures when exporting goods outside the United Kingdom.

We explore:

  • When should I move my exports to CDS?

  • How should I move my exports to CDS?

  • What are the key differences between CHIEF and CDS?

  • What shall I do when I get stuck?

Find answers also in this week's feature article of The Customs Watch. We keep a watchful eye on changes so you don't have to. See here:

Our webinar provides an insightful review of this topic in under 30 minutes, and participants of the live session walk away with documents, slides, and further insightful material right away (no need to wait). If you are interested in downloading the slides, please see

Friday 8 March 2024, Celebrating International Women's Day

Join us for enlightening speeches and contributions to honour women in international commerce, customs, and global trade. Theme: Encouraging Inclusion in Customs & Global Trade. At Customs Manager Ltd, we celebrated International Women's Day, a global event that recognises the valuable contributions of women to international trade and customs. On Friday, March 8, 2024, we hosted a live event to honour women in customs and global commerce. Watch along for insightful discussions and remarks from female thought leaders that will leave you feeling motivated.


1- We had the honour of being joined by Elizabeth Mainelli, the Lady Mayoress of the City of London, for the opening address. She emphasised the significance of International Women's Day in Customs and Global Trade, stating, "Today, we are showcasing the vital role that women hold in customs management and global commerce."

2- Deputy Director Perolat of Customs in DG TAXUD of the European Commission delivered a presentation outlining her journey from France to Brussels and her progression into high-ranking positions in the European public administration.

3- Next, Carol Lynch, the leader of the BDO Customs Practice in Dublin, shared her perspective on the recognition of women within a major business advisory firm.

4 - During the Q&A session, Enrika Naujokė, a customs industry entrepreneur, spoke with Ms. Lynch and Ms. Perolat about how women's achievements set a standard for excellence and motivate younger generations to pursue success in their careers.

This event was very valuable to shed light on the achievement of women in customs and global trade. To stay up to date with customs and global trade matters, leave your e-mail address at

I have my own young team, we are only 6 people, but we are growing quickly and I would like to make the same weekly calls. Please tell me what you use to record the screen? I would like to save our meetings so that I can analyze them later. I heard about this selection of recorders for mac, but I don’t know which one to choose. I would appreciate your help.
