Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) Scheme

Date:

Get an EORI number

You need an EORI number to move goods between the UK and non-EU countries.

If you do not have one, you may have increased costs and delays. For example, if HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) cannot clear your goods you may have to pay storage fees.

Apply for an EORI number that starts with GB

To apply for an Economic Operators Registration and Identification number (EORI number) you need your:

  • Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) – find your UTR if you do not know it
  • business start date and Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code – these are in the Companies House register
  • Government Gateway user ID and password
  • VAT number and effective date of registration (if you’re VAT registered) – these are on your VAT registration certificate
  • National Insurance number – if you’re an individual or a sole trader

If you do not already have a Government Gateway user ID, you’ll be able to create one when you apply.

You’ll get your GB EORI number immediately unless HMRC needs to make any checks on your application. If they do, it can take up to 5 working days.
