On the 18th of October 2014, Revenue will be introducing an Electronic Manifest System that will be used to manage the cargo manifests of all goods entering and leaving the country.
"The Cargo Manifest is an important record in the goods supply chain, containing a list of the goods on a means of transport. It is also important for customs control purposes - it effectively acts either as the first notification to Customs of the arrival of goods or the final confirmation that goods declared for export have actually been exported." www.revenue.ie
Presently, carriers (or their agents) provide manifest information to Revenue in either paper or email format. The introduction of this Electronic Manifest System will eliminate time and cost for the carrier by replacing the paper versions of the manifest with an electronic version and providing it directly to Customs.
