How do I apply for a temporary EORI number?



I would like to know how to apply for a temporary EORI number prior to applying for an EORI number as part of the VAT registration process?



If you need to apply for an EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification) number prior to your VAT registration you can apply for a temporary EORI number.

There are 2 options available:

NOTE: If you apply for an EORI number before VAT Registration, it will become invalid when the VAT Registration is completed so you would require to register for an EORI number with your VAT registration as well if you will be continuing to import/export goods with the UK.
