7 7 ASYCUDA++ - General overview Manifest Module SELECTIVITY Declaration Module Suspense Procedures Accounting Module Statistics Customs Audit Goods Arrival Direct Carrier Input Goods storage Transit, transhipment Warehousing Release of goods Lodgement Direct Trader Input Customs Input EDIFACT (CUSDEC) Payment of duties Cash, cheque, credit, Pre-payment

8 8 ASYCUDA++ is a complete and fully integrated Customs computer system. The ASYCUDA++ interface makes operation easier for the user by: - Presenting the system to the user in the form of task specific modules... …designed for the needs of an office or of a particular grouping of functions. The ASYCUDA++ System

9 9 ASYCUDA++ system modules are grouped into main three types, according to function: - General office User modules Specialist office User modules System maintenance and reporting The Modules

10 10 MODCBR 1. Module MODCBR is the Customs general (Branch) office module and the central part of the ASYCUDA++ system. MODCBR is for Customs data entry, declaration processing and general controls. MODBRK 2. Module MODBRK is the general office module for Customs brokers or declarants - to prepare and present declarations to Customs by Direct Trader Input(DTI). MODCBR MODBRK General User Modules

11 11 General User Modules Customs Declarations: Data capture and validation Calculations, messaging on Customs controls Storage of data and declaration registration Selectivity, inspection routing and reporting of inspection result Assessment, delivery MODCBR - Customs Branch Office

12 12 General User Modules Customs Declarations: Data capture and validation Calculations, messaging on Customs controls Storage of data and declaration registration Selectivity, inspection routing and reporting of inspection result Assessment, delivery Linked Functions: Manifest details; cargo discharge Duties and taxes payable or paid Selectivity controls - process routing and nomination of examiners Stock records for suspense procedures Management information MODCBR - Customs Branch Office

13 13 General User Modules This module has similar (but restricted) data entry and declaration processing functions to MODCBR. MODBRK is used for Direct Trader Input (DTI)*. MODBRK - Customs Brokers Office

14 14 Used in the Custom Broker or Declarants office:- To prepare and present Customs Declarations: Data capture and validation Calculations, messaging on controls Storage of declaration data and subject to Customs agreement on acceptable processing flows: Registration and/or Assessment Payment and release General User Modules Customs Server connection is required for these processes MODBRK - Customs Brokers Office Processes where a Customs Server connection is not necessary

15 15 ASYCUDA specialist modules are dedicated to specific Customs functions. MODCAR - Carrier or Manifest module MODACC - Accounting module MODSEL - Selectivity Controls module MODTRS - National Transit module MODSDI - SAD Deferred Input module Specialist User Modules MODCAR MODACC MODSEL MODSDI MODTRS

16 16 Selectivity is the selective inspection of transactions - either by physical examination or check of documents ASYCUDA allows the channeling of declarations to four processing lanes, nominated by colour: - Red lane for physical check; Yellow lane for documentary check; Blue lane for the option of post import/export audit; or Green lane for release Specialist User Modules MODSEL - Selectivity Controls Module

17 17 Module MODSDI is used for input and data validation of declarations initially processed through a non-computerised office. This allows for an effective check of the calculations and the other details of the manually processed declaration.... and incorporates the data into the ASYCUDA database to facilitate reporting and statistical extractions Specialist User Modules MODSDI - SAD Deferred Input Module

18 18 Maintenance & Reporting Additional ASYCUDA modules are used for the setup of the system, (National and Office configuration modules), and for system maintenance and statistical reporting. Module MODCHQ is used to maintain the systems reference tables and gives access to standard statistical extracts. MODCHQMODCHQ

19 19 Maintenance & Reporting The module called the Headquarters Module is used to set up and to maintain the ASYCUDA systems reference tables. The reference tables contain: the standard international codes, such as the HS Tariff, country and currency codes; national codes, such as office, broker/declarant and company codes; and calculation data, like rates of currency exchange, duty and tax rates, special exemptions and concessions. MODCHQ - Customs Headquarters Module

20 20 Maintenance & Reporting The headquarters module also gives quick access to standard statistical extractions from the ASYCUDA transaction database. Standard reports give a choice of views of the statistical database. If the preprogrammed views or reports are not sufficient in certain circumstances, SQL queries may be run from the ASYCUDA interface. MODCHQ - Customs Headquarters Module

21 21 Maintenance & Reporting Name of view: Ordered and totaled by: Customs DatabaseCountries/Products Country Products/Countries Products Financial DatabaseDuty/tax Account Duty/tax Country Duty/tax Product Duty/tax Customs Procedure Economic DatabaseImporter/Exporter/Country Importer/Exporter/Product List of Companies/Country List of Companies/Product Loss of revenue (preferences and concessions) - by budget codes, company, commodity and country.

23 23 Conclusions

24 24 Conclusions Reform is necessary, and is a continuous process, International standards need to be adopted, IT should become a strategic tool – MIS as a specific wing in NBR ? Fast pace of changes and increasing e-nature of international trade Short timeframe for the project and scope of change makes cooperation between all stakeholders and timely delivery of outputs a must Measures towards long term sustainability of reformed and automated processes required early in the project Should the above be recognised and accepted by all stakeholders the benefits from the ASYCUDA++ migration project and the associated reformed and modernised documentation/processes will be increased and felt over the long term.
