Excise Movement Control System (EMCS)
Online declarations and management

Overview of the EMCS System

If you ship goods in duty suspension in the EU, you must use EMCS, the EU electronic control system to manage your movements.

Alcohol, energy and tobacco products can all be moved in duty suspension, but you must submit shipment details to Customs online before moving the goods. You must also acknowledge receipt of goods received by you in duty suspension.

Our EMCS Online service is a simple way to manage these shipments, offering an alternative to keying data into the HMRC web site to make EMCS submissions to Customs.

Our Online Management Solution

Our EMCS bolt-on module for GTA and e-z Consign offers easy management of your customs movements.

Manage your compliance using the shipment data you have created in GTA or e-z Consign, keep track of your shipment movements individually or use the audit reports.
