HOW TO APPLY FOR A UK EORI NUMBER

In order to import or export in and out of the UK you must register with HMRC for an Economic Operators Registration and Identification number (EORI Number). This acts as an identification number for your business when we arrange customs entries to HMRC on your behalf. In order to apply for one, simple follow this link (https://www.gov.uk/eori) and follow the steps before you need us to complete the first customs entry for your business.

This process usually takes 3 working days but there is no guaranteed timescale. If you already have a VAT number in place then the EORI will be your GB VAT number followed by ‘000’.

Should you need to check whether your VAT number already has an EORI registration, please contact us on customs@cctworldwideltd.com in order we can check for you.
