HMRC ALLOCATES EORI NUMBERS TO ALL POSSIBLE TRADERS
An EORI number is a European Union registration and identification number for businesses which undertake the import or export of goods into or out of the EU. These are essential for businesses who wish to trade with the EU after we leave.
Every business will need an EORI number to move goods into or out of the EU after Brexit. As many traders as possible will be automatically allocated an EORI number to enable them to trade smoothly once the UK leaves the EU on 31 October. HMRC is sending letters to all possible VAT-registered businesses to advise them of their assigned UK EORI number. If your business is not VAT-registered, you still need to register for an EORI number. Getting an EORI number is an easy process that takes 5-10 minutes. Get started here
