Are you struggling to obtain and analyse your customs and international trade data?

When you import goods into the UK or export from the UK (as the importer or exporter of record) you are legally required to submit a customs declaration to HMRC.

Your business should always review the customs data submitted to HMRC on your behalf by your customs brokers. This is necessary in order to ensure you are not exposed to the risk of customs duty assessments and civil penalties. A customs analysis tool simplifies the process of analysing MSS (Management Support System) data from HMRC.

Watch our 1 minute video to learn how CDAT can benefit your business.
