The Money Order Voucher Entry System
(MOVES), which processes financial data input from a PS Form 1412, Daily
Financial Report, is being phased out. The Electronic Money Order
Voucher System (eMOVES) will replace MOVES.
Post OfficesTM and retail postal units converting
from MOVES to eMOVES will no longer send payments to the U.S. Customs
Service by issuing a no-fee money order. The accounting service center
(ASC) will process a monthly Intra-Governmental Payment and Collection
(IPAC) payment for the amounts reported into AIC 054 to Customs.
Effective with the conversion date to eMOVES, Post
Offices and retail postal units must follow the procedures below for customs
Collection of Customs Fees — eMOVES Offices
• Use AIC 054, Customs Collections, to report
funds held for payment to the U.S. Customs Service.
• Collect the exact amount from the "Postmaster
Collect" field, on Customs Form 3419A, Mail Entry - Customs.
• Each mail entry number along
with its corresponding amount must be entered into eMOVES.
• Keep PS Form 2944, Receipt for Customs
Duty Mail, in office records.
• Customs Form 3419A is retained locally, but
submitted at the close of the reporting period to the U.S. Customs Service
at the following address:
CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION
COLLECTIONS AND REFUNDS BRANCH
PO BOX 68907

Note: Until conversion to eMOVES, MOVES
offices will continue to follow the current Customs transaction procedures
that are outlined in the Postmaster/Field Guide, Version 4.0,
P&P 43, April 2005.
