This version is only used in Northern Ireland and will only accept departure and arrival declarations in respect of Transit offices located in Northern Ireland.
It does not accept departure and arrival declarations for Transit offices located in:
the Crown Dependencies (Channel Islands and Isle of Man)
The submission channel for Northern Ireland departure and arrival notifications is by software only.
You need to make sure that your software is able to interact with NCTS using either email or XML.
You can still start and end movements in Great Britain using either the free to use web portal or a software package to interact with NCTS. This includes goods that originate in Northern Ireland and are moved to Great Britain under unfettered access.
If your software is unable to interact with NCTS using email or XML, you cannot use NCTS to start or end transit movements in Northern Ireland.
You can start a transit movement in Northern Ireland from:
the premises of an authorised consignor (your or an agent’s premises)
an office of departure
If you are starting your transit movement at the premises of an authorised consignor, you can present your goods to your authorised consignor. They can start the movement and issue the Transit Accompanying Document (TAD) and movement reference number (MRN).
Starting a transit movement at an office of departure
You’ll be required to present your goods at the office of departure specified on your transit declaration, along with your local reference number. The office of departure will only start the movement, issue a TAD and movement reference number once you have done this.
You must also provide Border Force with notification of planned departures before you arrive at the office of departure by emailing: BFPortteam@homeoffice.gov.uk.
