What is an EORI number?

An EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification) number is used to identify your business as an importer and allows you to reclaim your import VAT.

Is an EORI number the same as a VAT number?

No, an EORI number is required for your business to import goods into the UK & the EU. VAT numbers have a variety of registration requirements depending on where you’re selling from/to. They are usually linked to your VAT number and will contain a two-letter country code (e.g. FR) and a 7-digit number.
