Please be aware that we are performing a routine upgrade to C3 at the moment. In the meantime...
What is C3?

At Customs Connect we are always being asked how and why businesses can and should monitor their import footprint.

There wasn’t a readily available solution so we have invested and and developed a solution to satisfy this need. The solution is C³.

Customs Connect Digital Solutions Limited delivers the digitalisation of “The Customs Connect Way”. Using Artificial Intelligence and enhanced machine learning technologies, our first software product is C³.

The technology connects companies to their data to achieve clarity and control over the supply chain. Utilising the data captured upon declaration of arrival into the EU, C³ analyses the information and builds an up-to-date picture of the import footprint.

The software enables importers to maintain accurate administrative records and manage the amount of duty and import VAT that has or hasn’t been paid. To find out more about your import data and the file format required click here

Against an increasingly complex tax compliance and regulatory backdrop, C³ will help businesses seamlessly transition to a more digital tax process and finance function.

The 3 pillars of import data

Connect

Connecting with your data will highlight where you could save money

The technology will monitor where you are paying the correct duty spend, helping to highlight any potential savings and available reliefs. This can help significantly with cashflow and supply chain planning.

Clarify

Clarity and better visibility will ensure compliance throughout the supply chain

Having sight of the information on a regular basis can help maintain and demonstrate solid compliance measures – particularly for those businesses covered by Senior Accounting Officer (SAO) regulations or with Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status. Regular analysis of the historical data demonstrates to the tax authorities that steps are taken to actively manage tax affairs.

Control

Taking control of your data will equip you to make better business decisions

provides a bespoke dashboard based on your organisation’s data to support the decisions made around supply chain planning. Whether that’s the use of duty deferment accounts, the TARIC headings used, import clearance times, or identifying the country of dispatch and origin of the products – delivers.
