Getting an EORI number to trade with the EU (no-deal)
An EORI number allows you to move goods into or out of the EU (including the UK). If you do not get one, you may have increased costs and delays. For example, if HM Revenues and Customs (HMRC) cannot clear your goods you may have to pay storage fees.
If there's a no-deal Brexit you will need a UK EORI number to move goods in or out of the UK. If you already have a UK EORI number, you can continue to use it.
