EORI Reminder

Monday 10th December, 2018 and still to the best of our knowledge…

It’s me again with another EORI reminder.  I know – labouring the point.  But application on your part now is essential.

If you export to EU countries, please see: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/partnership-pack-preparing-for-a-no-deal-eu-exit/preparing-for-a-no-deal-eu-exit-step-by-step-guide-to-exporting

If you import from EU countries, please see: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/partnership-pack-preparing-for-a-no-deal-eu-exit/preparing-for-a-no-deal-eu-exit-step-by-step-guide-to-importing

If you do both, please read both. Both guides try to explain in simple terms, what you will need to do inthe event of a hard Brexit.  You may notice in both documents that they begin with:

Step 1: register for an Economic Operator Registration and Identification number

As mentioned in previous posts, registering for an EORI is vital.

Immediate action is required:  if you trade goods with the EU, we advise you apply to HMR&C now for EORI registration, which hopefully will be before an anticipated big rush.  In the event of a no deal scenario, you will need an EORI number to support export and import customs declarations.  Don’t worry – this application is actually quite straightforward.  Usually customs complete the process in a few days.  When the rush starts, this of course could take much longer.  Start at: https://www.gov.uk/eori

After Brexit, remember your EORI

We want you to know it is mandatory

It’s a system you can’t buck                         

Without it you’ll be stuck                 

And Customs clearance will be a sorry story
