GET AN (EU) EORI NUMBER – ONLINE APPLICATION
Pursuant to a regulation in force since July 1, 2009, the Member States of the European Union have set up an EORI system for the identification of each organization or person carrying out import-export operations in the EU.
In the absence of an EORI number, customs clearance in the EU becomes impossible and goods dispatched will be stuck at customs with a serious risk of being returned to the sender. Furthermore, a non-EU company willing to act as IOR (importer of record) in the EU should get an EORI number beforehand.
Non-EU organizations or private individuals willing to obtain an EORI number can use the form below to submit an application online*. The EORI number will be available within 2 or 3 working days (after the payment of our fees and the receipt of all the required documents). Once issued by the Customs authorities, the EORI number is valid for customs clearance operations in all the EU countries.
Brexit notice : Following the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, as from 1 January 2021, companies willing to act as Importer of Record in the UK must apply for a specific GB EORI number allocated by the British customs authorities (HM Revenue & Customs). An EORI number issued in an EU country (e.g. France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, etc.) won’t be valid for customs clearance purposes in the UK and vice versa.
This application form was prepared by Corintax Consulting as a Tax service provider. Therefore, this form cannot be considered as an official document issued by a EU Customs Administration. Its only purpose is to collect relevant information from our customers in order to provide the service of EORI registration.
