and access Deferment/PVA statements and VAT certificates.
Importers will need to register and authorise R W Freight Services as a declarant to use their Deferment account via the CDS Platform, existing CHIEF standing authorities will not work.
Duty Deferment Account holders will need to set up a new Direct Debit Mandate to facilitate the use of their deferment account on CDS.
