How to register
To register to make an entry summary declaration in Great Britain, you need a Government Gateway user ID and password. If you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you register.
HMRC services may be slow during busy times. Check if there are any problems with this service.
After you have registered
You can submit entry summary declarations by either:
- purchasing compatible software
- employing the services of a Community System Provider
Purchasing compatible software
You need to purchase compatible software from software developers. Find out which software developers provide customs declaration support.
You’ll need a Government Gateway user ID and password – if you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you register.
Employing the services of a Community System Provider

What to do if the S&S GB service is unavailable
Economic Operators and Community System Providers should continue to send messages to the S&S GB service until HMRC confirms it is available again. These messages will be queued until the system is restored.
If you cannot send messages to the S&S GB service during the outage, you should send an entry summary declaration retrospectively when the S&S GB service is restored.
