EORI number application

An EORI number application is needed when you intend to engage in importing or exporting with one or more European countries. Besides being VAT registered, traders also need to have a unique identification number, which is referred to as the EORI number. This number stands for the Economic Operator Registration and Identification number. This scheme was introduced to harmonize the trading carried out within the EU, as well as for the customs authorities to better identify the respective traders. The EORI number application form needs to be duly completed and submitted. The information to be filled in will depend on a number of things, namely, whether the company in question is already VAT registered or not. Since the EORI number application process may lead to some uncertainties, it is better to have a fiscal representative to take care of it for you.
