Customs launch Asycuda in 2010

The Montserrat Customs and Revenue Service- Customs Division is pleased to announce that it has successfully carried out a recent upgrade of the ASYCUDA World System (“Automated System for Customs Data”) from that of 4.01 to 4.02.

ASYCUDA-officialsASYCUDA World was originally introduced in Montserrat in 2010 and has been working well despite a few intermittent disruptions due to technical issues.

To facilitate the upgrading process and to carry out some other work, Mr Fabian N. Joseph ASYCUDA Regional Technical Advisor who works for the Division on Technology and Logistics (DTL) at the United Nations Conference for Trade And Development (UNCTAD) was on island for the last two weeks working with technical persons in Customs Department and at DITES to upgrade the system. On the 30th of April and the 1st of May training sessions were held with a number of ASYCUDA users at the Customs Offices at Government Headquarters in Brades where they were exposed to the new online interface for ASYCUDA in Montserrat. The official changeover to the new interface took place on the labour weekend and many persons would have started using it from Tuesday the 6th of May. There might be some persons or establishments who were not able to attend the sessions last week and may be having difficulty navigating the new interface, if so you can call 491 3816 ext. 402 during working hours and ask for assistance. This new upgrade now allows us to have access to more features and services as more of the work will become automated. If all goes according to plan within the next six months we intend make the entire clearance process paperless meaning that importers and their agents would not have to print entries to bring to customs as part of the clearance process and this will reduce their paper and printing expenses. Even invoices would be scanned and submitted to customs in electronic form even though we will reserve the right to ask to see original invoices if we deemed it necessary.
The customs division of the MCRS is pleased with this most recent progress as we strive to facilitate the movement of goods in and out of Montserrat.
