GVMS Planned Downtime

Date: Jan 12 2024

HMRC has advised that there will be a planned GVMS downtime on Saturday 13th January 2024 between from 21:30 PM to 22:30 PM (1 Hour).

This does NOT involve a full GVMS service outage. GVMS will remain un-shuttered and available throughout.

Between 21:30 PM GMT to 22:30 PM GMT on Saturday 13th January 2024, there is chance that GVMS messages may queue for 5 minutes or less.
Traders could have a delay in receiving message updates in the mentioned 5-minute time frame.

Once the 5-minute time frame passes (within 21:30 PM GMT to 22:30 PM GMT), all messages will process as normal.

HMRC has requested CCS-UK to pass on their apology for the inconvenience and to thank you for your patience
