Simplified Customs Declaration Procedure (previously CFSP)

SCDP offers authorised traders numerous solutions for the movement of goods across UK borders



Simplified Declaration Procedure (SDP) - The Trader submits a simplified frontier declaration (SFD), followed by a supplementary declaration (SD), which must be submitted within the time limit shown in the trader’s authorisation.

Entry In the Declarant’s Records (EIDR) - The trader submits an entry into their records, followed by a supplementary declaration (SD) within the time limit shown in the trader’s authorisation.

A Final Supplementary Declaration (FSD) is submitted by the fourth working day of the month following the end of the reporting period. Where both EIDR and SDP authorisations are held, the FSD must include the number of declarations for both types of simplified procedures within the same FSD.




→ Accelerated release of goods due to minimal data requirements at the border

→ More efficient management of high workloads when utilising SD

→ The ability to combine SCDP with free circulation and special procedures to suit business needs , such as:

- CW - Customs Warehousing
- IP - Inward Processing
- OPR - Outward Processing Relief
- FZ - Free Zone
- TA - Temporary admission
- Authorised Use (End Use)

→ Electronic submission of declarations to HMRC using the Customs Declaration Service (CDS)

→ Achieving cash flow benefits, as import duty and VAT are suspended until the SD is submitted.

→ A Duty Deferment account for paying import duties and VAT.

→ Building a partnership with HMRC for more efficient and targeted controls.
