Currency codes for CDS

Use appendix 11 to find codes for data element 4/10 of the Customs Declaration Service (CDS) when importing into the UK.

The invoice currency code, declared in DE 4/10 does not affect the currency to be used for the statistical value declared in DE 8/6 which must always be declared in Sterling (GBP).

The invoice currency declared must also apply to the amounts declared in both DE 4/11 (Total amounts invoiced) and DE 4/14 (Item price/amount).

Any currencies declared must be attached to a specific data element amount. It should therefore be declared with the appropriate data element amount. For example:

  • GBP followed by the total amount invoiced in DE 4/11
  • GBP followed by item price/amount in DE 4/4
  • GBP followed by additional freight charges in DE 4/9
