From 1 January 2021, the transition period with the European Union (EU) will end. As part of that process, it is important that customs duties collected are accounted for correctly.
This will enable the UK to meet its legal obligations and ensure a smooth transition.

When a Customs Declaration is submitted using any of the CPCs listed in Annex A or B, from 1 January 2021, traders will be required to enter a mandatory AI code (at ‘Item’ level) in box 44. The AI code will be GEN53.

Who should read:  Any business making an import Customs Declaration via Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) where Customs Duties are potentially payable.

When effective:  The changes apply to specific CHIEF Customs Procedure Codes (CPCs) from 1 January 2021 until:

• 9 April 2021 for Annex A CPCs
• 31 December 2021 for Annex B CPCs
