CBP Moving Daily and Monthly Statements to ACE Dec. 9
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced that as of Dec. 9 the Automated Commercial Environment will be the sole authorized electronic data interchange system for generating, transmitting, and updating daily and monthly statements for all entries except reconciliation (type 09) entries. As of that date the Automated Commercial System will no longer be an authorized EDI system for such purposes.
Statement processing is a voluntary automated program for participants in the Automated Broker Interface that allows entries to be grouped on a daily basis by importer or filer and allows payment of related duties, fees, and taxes by a single payment. As an alternative to paying statements on a daily basis, participants in the periodic monthly statements test may pay by the 15th working day of the month following the month of entry or release. Both daily and monthly statements are currently generated, transmitted to the filer, and updated in ACS; however, this functionality will transition to ACE as of Dec. 9.
CBP states that until reconciliation entries are filed in ACE statements for reconciliation entries will continue to be generated, transmitted, and updated in ACS.
