EORI number, or, the Economic Operator Registration Identification Number, is a number assigned to a company that imports and/or exports to other European countries. The EORI number is obligatory and its assignment came into effect since the 1st of July 2009. Having businesses being identified with their EORI number helps the customs authorities in European countries to identify traders who are engaging in exporting and/or importing activities. If your company is considering engaging in trading activities with one or more EU member states, then it needs to have an EORI number. Thus it will need to apply for it. This is one other administrative task that a fiscal representative can handle for you, among the myriad of other formalities and paperwork that need to be seen to when you engage in trading activities with EU member state/s. VACUE can assist you in moving to more peace of mind, by having a fiscal representative handle these tasks for you.

What is the EORI number
The EORI number is often just an extension of your VAT number. The country code is within the prefix of the EORI number, and it is followed by some numbers. As a trader you will be obliged to use your EORI number in all of your customs activities, as it is basically your identification number.
How a fiscal representative can help with your EORI number
You may apply for your EORI number yourself, but EORI numbers are normally granted to VAT registered companies only. Therefore the first step is to register your company for VAT. The VAT registration process involves various paperwork, and subsequently you will need to go through additional paperwork so as to request the assignment of the EORI number. Therefore, to make things more plain sailing, it makes more sense to leave all this in the capable hands of an experienced fiscal representative. He/she will have gone through these processes several times for other companies, and so you can rest assured that he/she will know what to do, and do it well. It will also help you save a lot of time and effort because if you were to do it yourself chances are that you will not know where to start, or what to do.
