Hi Muhammad

CHIEF can be complex and small errors can lead to issues down the line.

HMRC have a fantastic, detailed website which I recommend you explore and get a feel for the system and how it works:

I hope this helps.

Kind regards



Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website under Quick Links > Library > Official Statistics – Publications – Notices, Info Sheets & Other Reference Materials > Import, Export & International Trade. The Public Notices are in numerical order.

Further detailed information regarding exporting goods outside the EU can also be found on our website by using the following link

Bit late replying to this one because we only launched it yesterday. Anyone wishing to submit NES export declarations can now use our e-z Consign system at It’s a more user friendly system than submitting NES entries directly through CHIEF and at the same time you can produce other export documents like invoices, packing lists, standard shipping notes, etc. It also links with the e-z Cert system for certificates of origin, EUR1’s and A.TR’s.
Drop me a line if you would like a demo. It’s free to setup an account and try it out.
