CFSP

Customs Freight Simplified Procedures (CFSP) is an electronic declaration method applicable for importing goods from third countries, including EU member states, as of January 1, 2021, to the UK. It allows UK traders to benefit from simplified import declarations for goods arriving from outside the EU.

CFSP simplifies declarations, potentially leading to faster customs clearance and reduced delivery times. Businesses need to be authorised by HMRC to use CFSP.

CFSP is separate from Simplified Declarations for Imports, which can be used for goods brought into the UK from anywhere, including Northern Ireland and Ireland.

Two CFSP procedures are available: the Simplified Declaration Procedure (SDP) and Entry in the Declarant’s Records. These procedures can be combined.
