TSS will soon allow traders to submit a simplified frontier declaration (SFD) without needing
to generate a supplementary declaration (SDI) at the same time, but only in certain scenarios.

These scenarios are:

  • When traders use their own customs freight simplified procedures (CFSP)
    authorisation
  • When traders are using their own CFSP and are moving goods using the customs
    special procedure ‘Customs Warehousing’ and using the procedure code ‘71xx’

The benefits to traders are:

  • A reduction in workload where supplementary declaration processing is not required
  • The expanded support that the TSS system will provide for these processes

To make use of this new feature, traders should add their own CFSP authorisation number to their company profile in TSS.

More guidance will be available via the NI Customs Trade Academy (NICTA) website in the
coming weeks.
