HMRC ALLOCATES EORI NUMBERS TO ALL POSSIBLE TRADERS

Wednesday 28th August, 2019

Every business will need an EORI number to move goods into or out of the EU after Brexit. HMRC announced today that they will be auto-enrolling all possible VAT-registered businesses who trade with the EU for a UK EORI number.

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.

Every business will need an EORI number to move goods into or out of the EU after Brexit. HMRC is sending letters to all possible VAT-registered businesses over the next two weeks 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 bit.ly/EORI-SW
