As Johnson continues to lead Brexit negotiations in the hope of reaching a deal before the EU summit in Brussels later this week, we remind you to send us your EORI numbers as soon as possible. This will limit the likelihood of shipments being affected if customs procedures between the UK and your country are put in place.
What are EORI numbers?
EORI stands for “Economic Operators Registration and Identification” number and consists of two parts:
- The country code of the issuing Member State
- A code or number that is unique in the Member State which will include your VAT number (if registered)
They are used in the process of customs declarations and customs clearance for both import and export shipments travelling to/from the EU and countries outside the EU. This number is used to track and identify customs information within the EU.
You can apply for this here.
