It confirms data that a no deal Brexit would mean a fivefold increase in the number of customs declarations, with 132,000 companies facing the red tape of declarations for the first time.
As a member of the EU's customs union, the United Kingdom does not impose taxes or require customs declarations on goods from other member states - but as part of Brexit, ministers plan to leave the customs union and negotiate a new arrangement in its place.
If the CDS is "not ready in time and if there is no viable fall-back option", it would be "catastrophic", the cross-party committee concluded.
Lorry-loads of food will rot in traffic jams at the United Kingdom border after Brexit and hundreds of millions of shipments of other goods could be stranded in queues, if HM Revenue and Customs does not get the money it needs to beef up its declarations systems. The House of Commons Public Accounts Committee appears yet to be convinced about HMRC's state of readiness for the introduction of the new Customs Declarations System (CDS) in early 2019, and has recommended additional investment in the current customs IT system (CHIEF) to provide the United Kingdom with a viable back-up option should there be problems with CDS just as we are about to leave the EU.

The government said the project was on track to be delivered in January 2019.
'Much remains to be done to have an effective Customs Declaration Service in place, on time, and that traders know how to use'.

A failed customs system could lead to "massive queues at Dover", according to PAC report. "This compares to over 6,000 trusted traders in Germany".
PAC noted that HMRC "is now managing an unsustainable amount of change" which could put the delivery of CDS at risk.
It also said the government should aim to increase the number of "trusted traders" who are allowed to use simplified arrangements, which is now just 604 - a 10th of the number with such status in Germany.
