Customs and Excise reports on Revenue Online Service (ROS)

E-Customs Accounts reports are available in Revenue Online Service (ROS) to customers registered for ROS and Customs and Excise (C&E).

The report facility provides reports for Automated Import System (AIS) and Automated Export System (AES) declarations by providing more real-time information. Excise Duty Entry (EDE) declaration reports are also available where applicable.


The eCustoms Accounts System is effective from 6 March 2023 for AIS and from 21 March 2023 for AES. EDE reports are available from 1 March 2024.

The main benefits are:

  • our cash top-up service operates 24/7
  • real-time reporting
  • reports are only made available to the importer, exporter, and payer
  • and
  • the system takes cash, where available, before deducting from the customer’s deferred account.
