The EORI, which stands for the Economic Operator Registration Identification Number, is a very important number for a company that engages in international trading. This number is assigned to importers and exporters. The EORI number is compulsory for all American companies which export goods to European countries, as well as those who import goods from any European country. The assignment of this number came into effect since the 1st of July 2009. The main aim of the EORI number is to enable the customs authorities in the EU member states to better identify the traders that are engaging in exporting or importing activities to or from the EU. The EORI number is granted for an indefinite period. If your company is going to start exporting goods to European countries, or importing from such countries, then one needs to register for the EORI number. The VACUE network is always here to assist you when it comes to business operations which are in any way linked to international trading. The EORI number registration is one such process.

The EORI number is usually an extension of the trader’s VAT number. The country code will be the prefix of the EORI number. Then there will be a series of numbers following it. The validity of the EORI number can be easily checked online. This validity check applies both for the supplier’s as well as for the client’s EORI numbers.
It is very important to ensure that the customs agent always enters your EORI number accurately, so as to avoid any problems. This is particularly important in case there is the need for any refunds of the VAT by the tax authorities.
