EORI NUMBERS - AN ESSENTIAL PART OF YOUR BREXIT TOOLKIT
27 August 2019
As part of its no-deal Brexit preparations, HMRC has automatically issued some 80,000 businesses with Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) numbers.
This has been done because of increasing concern that businesses that have previously only traded within the EU may still be unaware that an EORI number is essential to import or export goods after Brexit. After Brexit, all movements to and from the European Union will be treated as Imports or Exports and, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, all post Brexit trade in goods with the EU will require an EORI number.
