UK leaves EU – Business preparations

The United Kingdom leaves the European Union on 31 January 2020. After this date there will be a transition period until the end of 2020, while the UK and EU negotiate are free trade agreement (FTA).

The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period.

The UK suggests some useful actions that do not depend on negotiations.

Preparing your business

“If you move goods into or out of the EU, you must Economic Operators Registration and Identification  (EORI) number.” Operators should also decide how they want to make customs declarations and whether they need to a customs representative.

An EORI number that starts with GB will be necessary to move goods in or out of the UK if there’s no Brexit deal.

If someone already has an EORI number that starts with GB, they can continue to use it. It will be 12 digits long. If someone is registered for VAT it will include their VAT registration number.

EORI numbers are not needed if you will only:

Post or parcel companies will tell their customers if there is a necessity for EORI number or not.

“You’ll need an EU EORI number if your business will be making customs declarations or getting a customs decision in the EU,”the UK government says. “Get this from the customs authority in the EU country where you submit your first declaration or request your first decision.”
