GET AN (EU) EORI NUMBER – ONLINE APPLICATION FORM
Corintax® no longer offers an EORI registration service to non-EU companies willing to import goods into Germany. Indeed, we have noticed that most German carriers refuse to use an EU EORI number belonging to a company not established in the European Union. If you need an EU EORI number to import in another EU country or a GB EORI number to import in the United Kingdom, please scroll down the page to reach the application form.
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, UK companies willing to act as Importer/Exporter of Record in the EU must apply for a specific EU EORI number allocated by a Member State of the European Union (e.g. France, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, etc.). An EORI number starting with “GB” and issued by the British customs authorities (HM Revenue & Customs) is no longer valid for customs clearance purposes in the EU and vice versa.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.
