Issues resolved
  • 40551 - ESS report header now shows 'United Kingdom' rather 'European Union'
  • 40649 - Standalone print client no longer requires a separate licence.
  • 40560 - FSD report query timeout is now configurable

  • Published on 21st April 2021

Sequoia v4.20

Goal

  • Bug fixes

Release Notes

  • List service performance problems were identified and have been resolved. This was something that has come to light due to the increase in the volume of declarations being submitted since January.
  • DeleteGbDeclaration API was allowing an accepted declaration, which had subsequently received an inventory failure, to be deleted from Sequoia. In this circumstance, the declaration should be updated with a reason for cancellation and the SendGbDeclarationCancellation API should be used. The DeleteGbDeclaration API will now prevent a declaration in this state from being deleted.


Issues resolved
  • 40413 - Speed issues reported but relates to list service performance problems
  • 40436 - Find Job function not returning results due to database timeout
  • 40206 - API allowed an accepted but inventory-failed declaration to be deleted
  • 40383 - Error when looking up existing declarations to link to a job

Sequoia v4.19

Click here for upgrade instructions

Goal

  • Installer enhancements
  • Worksheet enhancements
  • Modifications to Postponed VAT Accounting (PVA) reporting
  • Bug fixes

Release Notes

  • The installer now shows the progress of file lock checking and prerequisite checks alongside the progress bar.
  • Duty and VAT methods of payment can now be specified in worksheet data and are included in the Excel template files and the XML schema. The methods of payment can be used when the 'auto populate tax lines on declarations' setting is enabled. Specifying these values can be used to override Sequoia's default behaviour where 'D' or 'F' are used depending on whether a deferment number is specified in the declaration.
  • The time taken to open a worksheet has been improved. This is more noticeable when opening larger worksheets.
  • Import declarations using PVA procedures now report the VAT amount on the C88 as a separate value. 'Total Other' is no longer shown as a negative value on the C88. 'Declaration find' search results for declarations made after this upgrade will no longer show a negative 'Total Other' value (this will not affect declarations made prior to upgrading).


Issues resolved
  • 40275 - NCTS 'Write Off' date not being reported correctly in the 'Find transit declarations' results
  • 40179 - API Intermediary Service failing to connect to the Sequoia API Service

  • The Declaration Report now includes the Job Customer, Containers [31], Tax Line [47] details and the current declaration state.
  • Finalising an Ocean or Road shipment/consolidation (required to be able to link them with an NCTS movement) no longer requires a Master UCR (MUCR). If the MUCR is not set on an Ocean or Road shipment/consolidation then clicking the Finalise button will automatically set the status to "Finalised" without sending the association / close MUCR messages.
  • NCTS statuses have been improved to give more feedback if there is a failure when sending declarations to the NCTS system.
  • The UCN field on a Road Import job is removed when the job is linked with a CCS-UK inventory record as it is redundant.


Issues resolved
  • 39622 - Duty tax lines not automatically added when commodity is duty free under certain preferences
  • 39947 - Carriage returns included in Produced Documents [44] on an NCTS declaration caused the declaration message to fail
  • 39681 - Underscores included in a CHIEF declaration resulting in CONTRL message rejections

  • 39686 - Profit and Loss report was incorrect if accruals had been apportioned
  • 34537 - Sequoia Client experienced an unrecoverable error if NCTS unloading remarks were accessed after manually setting the status to Unloading Permission Granted
  • 39699 - Accepted, non-inventory linked, Road Import declarations were not being set to Accepted and Cleared (a stored procedure runs daily to update the previous day's declarations since no "clearance" message is sent from CHIEF)
  • 39711 - NCTS declaration API schema modified as the 'Other Information' element for a Previous Document was mandatory
  • 39718 - Problems with downloading Sequoia licence resolved
  • 39729 - Installer was failing if the Print Client folder had a Windows file lock

Sequoia v4.13

Goal

  • Brexit enhancements
  • Bug fixes

Release Notes

  • HMRC have issued Customs Information Paper #8.
    We have added functionality that from 1st January 2021 all declarations which have Procedure Codes indicated in the CIP will have the GEN53 AI Statement automatically added to the declaration item.
    The date required will be taken from the flight date of the inventory record (for air) or the shipment date (for ocean or road).
    The 'into warehouse date' will be used for all ex-warehouse declarations.
    Where the job is not linked to a shipment then the AI Statement will be added but the date the goods were imported into the UK will need to be completed.
    These settings are time-limited and will automatically come into effect between 1st January 2021 and 30th April 2021 (or 31st December 2021 for ex warehouse declarations).
  • The default Border Transport Mode [SAD box 25] for declarations linked with Road jobs has been set to '6' for RoRo as it is deemed the most likely 'use case' from 1st January.
  • A prompt has been added when setting Goods Location [SAD box 30] to confirm the correct Border Transport Mode [SAD box 25] to use when the port supports 'mixed' mode traffic.
  • The VAT Tax line Method of Payment code of 'G' for PVA enabled Consignee's (click here for guidance) is now being set when a worksheet with the 'Auto populate tax lines on declaration' setting is imported into a declaration.
  • Installer enhancements.


Issues resolved
  • 39164 - Out of warehouse declarations were not creating the B00 VAT Tax line, as specified in the tariff, if the Tax Rate had not been set for the stock record.
  • 39043 - The installation/upgrade process should not fail when unable to test connections to ASM web services. A warning is displayed instead.
Software detail
  • Release 4 - Sprint 13
  • Developed 7th December - 18th December 2020


Sequoia v4.12

Goal

  • Brexit enhancements
  • Bug fixes

Release Notes

  • The option to default VAT tax lines to use 'G' Method of Payment to support Postponed VAT Accounting (PVA) has been added. Details of this enhancement can be found here.
  • Barcode for the MRN added to Export declaration ESS reports.
  • Default search option for EIDR declarations has been added to the Find Declaration functionality.
  • EIDR declarations are supported through the API (CreateImportGbDeclaration request). Validation is in place to prevent sending of an EIDR to HMRC through the API.
  • The ability to 'arrive' pre-arrival Road Import declarations from the Consolidation, Shipment and Job lists has been added. Details of this enhancement can be found here.
  • Manual printing of an import C88 report is now available through the Reports option in the declaration editor when the H2 or E2 report has been received. This has resolved a technical issue where, on occasion, the acceptance response message (which normally creates the C88) had 'failed' at the CSP.
  • The badge used for sending a declaration can now be changed prior to acceptance of a declaration.
  • ETSF Consol notes and Release Note comments are now editable for created pre-arrival consignments.
  • Road Consolidation and Shipment trailer number restriction has been increased to allow 35 characters.

Sequoia v4.11

Goal

  • NCTS Enhancements
  • EIDR Declaration
  • Bug fixes

Release Notes

  • The ability to print an NCTS TAD/TSAD document in Fallback has been included. The CRM record for the Principal captures the Business Continuity Authorisation Number together with serial numbers for the fallback procedure. A checkbox has been added to the NCTS Movement to indicate that fallback procedures are in place and once checked the system prevents the sending of the CUSDEC message and allows printing of the TAD/TSAD report with the Business Continuity stamps.
  • To support the ability to defer import CFSP supplementary declarations from 1st January for up to six months, an EIDR (Entry in Declarant's Records) editor has been added. Details of this new functionality can be found here.
  • The Declaration Acceptance Exporter plug-in has been further extended to allow output to be filtered on transport mode as well as the option to suppress the creation of sub-folders for the output files.
  • The Find Transit Declarations function now returns results where the NCTS Movement record exists but the declaration does not (for example, where an Arrival has been rejected).

Sequoia v4.7

Goal

  • Preparations for Brexit and the Northern Ireland protocols.
  • Updates to the installer functionality to simplify some of the dialog wording.
  • Updates to the installer to allow the user to continue the installation when only warning level prerequisites are displayed.

Release Notes

  • To support the requirement for Import declarations for goods moving between mainland GB and Northern Ireland from 1st January 2021, validation restrictions on Jobs have been removed to allow Origin and Destination to both be locations within GB.
  • Work has been undertaken to allow the Community Status SDC codes to be removed from ETSF functionality from 1st January 2021 without affecting current functionality or viewing pre-Brexit records.
  • User is now prompted to update a saved declaration's Total Packages and/or MUCR when a Road Import Job's packages or UCN is amended. This replicates the existing behaviour with Ocean Import Jobs.
  • Modifications to the List Service's base query settings are now retained when upgrading the software.


Issues resolved

Issues resolved
  • 34643 - Problem occurred where E2 and E8 messages for the same declaration were processed simultaneously
  • 36662 - Problem occurred processing DEP update messages (UKCINV ERS) where the DEP location differs to CCS-UK PIMA address location
Software detail
  • Release 3 - Sprint 20
  • Developed 26 May - 19 June 2020


Sequoia v3.18

Goal

  • Urgent bug fixes.

Release Notes

  • An event is now published when an export declaration is departed (this occurs on receipt of a CUSRES where the SOE is 8). This 'declarationDepartureNotification' event can be added to the API configuration. Schema defining the event payload is included with the API documentation.
  • The Status Event Writer plug-in (which captures published events and writes the data to the file system) has been extended to include the ability to write out the 'declarationDepartureNotification' event. The plug-in has been further extended to have the ability to write the event payloads to a message queue instead of, or as well as, the file system.


Issues resolved
  • 34698 - GetFullAcceptedDeclarationResponse API method was not returning the correct entry route following arrival of a pre-arrival declaration
  • 34634 - Creation of Road Import jobs required the user to be in an Ocean Export role as opposed to an Ocean Import role
  • 34710 - NCTS IE025 and IE058 messages were overwriting the original creator of the declaration
  • 20164 - Toolbars in Sequoia were able to be removed but not easily restored

  • 35473 - C130 report was not displaying the entire commodity or procedure code
  • 35720 - Unable to associate Shipment to an NCTS Movement when the Shipment was linked to an OLE record
Software detail
  • Release 3 - Sprint 18
  • Developed 17 February - 22 May 2020


Sequoia v3.11

Goal

  • Urgent bug fixes.

Release Notes


Issues resolved
  • 34214 - Deadlock occurrences processing NCTS CUSDEC message
  • 34242 - Unable to specify 3 letter Carrier Code in ETSF consignment
Software detail
  • Release 3 - Sprint 11
  • Developed 3 February - 11 February 2020


Sequoia v3.8

Goal

  • Urgent bug fixes.

Release Notes

  • Declaration Acceptance Exporter plug-in (which writes out data to the file system when a declaration is accepted) has been extended to no longer require the declaration to be associated with a Job. This is a configurable option.
  • New CCS-UK port location for Basildon (IATA code TBY) supported for inventory-linked import declarations.


Issues resolved
  • 32752 - ESS Report missing Premises and SPOFF details for multi item declarations
  • 32897 - Global search could return records marked as deleted by the data archiving process
  • 33251 - Ocean Export role permissions were not being respected for Declarations associated to Ocean/Road Export jobs

Sequoia v3.3

Goal

  • Enhance the Archiving application to boost performance.
  • Remove all deleted data from the database.
  • Add the ability to change the Customer of a Worksheet.
  • Support deletion of multiple Worksheets.

Release Notes

  • The Archiving application allows the creation of a Job Report for every Job being archived to be suppressed. Where users have separate systems which already capture the Job data, the production of the Job Report may not be required and can therefore be prevented from being automatically produced. This is a configurable option (Job Reports for archived Jobs are enabled by default). Preventing the Job Reports from being produced will improve the overall speed of the archiving process. A further issue was discovered where the Sequoia Client was found to be inoperable during the archiving process - this has been resolved.
  • When records are deleted in Sequoia (Jobs, Declarations, Shipments, ETSF, etc) they are retained in the database but marked as "inactive" and are unrecoverable. They are hidden from the Sequoia client but remain in the database. These records will now be permanently deleted during the upgrade process.
  • The Customer of a Worksheet can now be changed after the Worksheet has been created. The Customer cannot be changed if any part of the Worksheet has been used in a Declaration or if the Worksheet has been "finalised".
  • The "delete" context menu on the Worksheet list now allows multiple Worksheets to be selected and deleted (previously only one Worksheet could be deleted at a time).
  • Option for "passive mode" has been added to the Pentant gateway to support an "Active" or "Passive" FTP connection.


Issues resolved
  • 31378 - API Intermediary service configuration removed on upgrading to a new version of Sequoia
  • 31464 - File Document Store EP plug-in does not ignore certain reports
  • 31369 - Unrecoverable error while processing multiple 'SDF' removals from Customs Warehousing
Software detail
  • Release 3 - Sprint 3
  • Developed 09 September - 30 October 2019


Sequoia v2 - NCTS Declarations

Sequoia v2.7

Goal

  • Enhance ETSF functionality to allow a record to be linked to an NCTS Movement by the Transit MRN.
  • Enhance Road Import functionality to allow CCS-UK inventory records to be linked to Road Import jobs.
  • Enhance Declaration Find functionality to include the Border Transport Mode.

Release Notes

  • ETSF records now include a Transit MRN field in order to indicate a discharged transit declaration has "moved" into the CCS-UK inventory. The ETSF Find functionality has been extended to allow searching for ETSF records by this Transit MRN. The "Transit MRN" column in the results grid is available from the "Column Chooser" menu.
  • 'TRK' can be used as the Carrier on an ETSF record to indicate the consignment has moved by road.
  • Road Import jobs can now be created from CCS-UK inventory records. In addition, an "inventory task" can be added to Road Import jobs to allow linking existing CCS-UK inventory records to a job. The frontier declaration created from a Road Import job which has an inventory associated will be created with the Master UCR (MUCR) generated from the inventory record. The Transport Identity [SAD box 21] will be taken from the vehicle registration / trailer number (if there is a shipment record associated to the job), otherwise the inventory carrier and flight number will be used. Border Transport Mode (SAD box 25) will default to "3 - Road Transport".
  • The Declaration Find now includes the ability to search for, and display, the Border Transport Mode. The "Border Transport Mode" column in the results grid is available from the "Column Chooser" menu. Upgrading to this release will automatically populate the existing records in the Sequoia Data Warehouse database with their Border Transport Mode.


Issues resolved
  • 31037 - Permission denied when opening an export declaration linked to a Road Export job
Software detail
  • Release 2 - Sprint 7
  • Developed 26 August - 6 September 2019


Sequoia v2.6

Goal

  • Enhance NCTS Find Transit Declarations search options.
  • Enhance API NCTS functionality to be able to get Movement status and publish Movement status changes.

Release Notes

  • The API now supports retrieval of an NCTS Movement Status. There was already a method to get an NCTS Declaration status but if the NCTS Declaration was created as the result of an arrival message being sent, the status would always be "Declaration Created".
  • The API now publishes an event whenever an NCTS Movement's status is updated. The payload of this event contains the LRN, MRN (assuming an MRN has been allocated) and the current status in plain text (i.e. 'Declaration MRN allocated'). This event is also published if the status is set "manually" via the Status toolbar button on the NCTS Movement editor.
  • The NCTS Find Transit Declarations functionality has been extended to allow searching by Movement Status. In addition, the 'potential guarantee amount' of the NCTS Movement has been included in the search results data.


Issues resolved
  • 30670 - Issue with Destination Country [17a] and Declaration Report
Software detail
  • Release 2 - Sprint 6

Sequoia v2.5

Goal

  • Enhance NCTS Transit Guarantee Functionality
  • Inclusion of Safety and Security information in an NCTS Declaration
  • Enhancements to NCTS to be able to search for existing transit movements / declarations

Release Notes

  • The NCTS system does not support declaration of GB issued guarantees however it is being extended in the near future to allow this. The Transit Guarantee functionality within Sequoia has been extended to allow a guarantee to be automatically added to the NCTS declaration once the system supports this inclusion. This is set to false by default.
  • NCTS declarations can now be sent including safety and security information. This will also include production of a Transit Security Accompanying Document (TSAD).
  • Search functionality is now available for NCTS.


Issues resolved
  • 30233: Customs Duty Rate and VAT Rate not accurate in Declaration Report. Duty Rate not matching Tariff caused by rounding issues
Software detail
  • Release 2 - Sprints 4 & 5
  • Developed 15 July - 09 August 2019


Sequoia v2.3

Goal

  • Enhance NCTS to declare Security details and print reports.

Release Notes

  • The external NCTS test system is not currently working. This means that we have been unable to fully test the NCTS message build. We have compared the message build to the previous version (before security declarations were added to NCTS in Sequoia) and have found that NCTS builds messages in the same way. Recommend that this does not get deployed to any users who currently use NCTS until we can get a proper response from the NCTS test system.


Issues resolved
  • 30066: Find Job - No Records returning - Timing out - Versions 1.163.40 & 1.189.38 & 2.2, 2.3
  • 29546: New Job form can be resized so it hides the Relationships controls
  • 30237: Controls missing on all parties on air import jobs
  • 30185: The NCTS Declaration validation Routing dialog when attempting to delete records is incorrectly worded
Software detail
  • Release 2 - Sprint 3
  • Developed 1 July - 12 July 2019


Sequoia v2.2

Goal

  • Enhance NCTS to include ability to declare Security details.

Release Notes

  • NCTS Security Declaration Details will save, but currently will not be sent in an NCTS declaration message.
  • On this upgrade/installation and every subsequent upgrade from this release onwards, the message log table will be truncated so that it will contain records of messages from the last year only.
    Issues resolved
    • 30033: NCTS Seals grid has a horizontal scroll bar once more than 3 seals are declared
    • 29969: Declaration Find not pulling all records from the data warehouse into Sequoia
    • 29972: Air Export Jobs tab is not updating after processing a batch via API
    • 29307: ICS code not populating on Sequoia Find Declaration Summary pane
