EORI Customs Number Registration Service

General Advice

An EORI customs number is only necessary if your business is importing goods from outside EU.
For buying goods inside the EU, an EORI number is not required.

Goods are specified in 1000s of customs categories, and it depends on the category whether import duties (CLO), VAT or other taxes (excise duties) need to be paid on the imported goods.

In order to find out which taxes apply, we can look up the category, but in case of doubt it is better to consult a customs agent (on your behalf) to avoid problems later.

For goods from another EU country, there are never import duties (CLO), but depending on the goods category, VAT and/or excise duties may apply - typical examples are certain alcoholic beverages, tabacco, fuel.

Technically speaking, an EORI number can be acquired without VAT registration - but in case of certain goods categories VAT will have to be paid, so in that case it is wise to get a VAT registration as well.
