The TSS simplified journey allows businesses to move goods from Great Britain (GB) into Northern Ireland (NI) by making a simplified declaration before the goods move and then providing the full information about the goods after they have moved. This is the most common journey on TSS and is described in the process flow below.

If you are new to TSS, we recommend starting in Getting Started, with the beginner's guide.
