Getting ready for Brexit


With all the uncertainty currently taking place over Brexit, the government are finally starting to offer some guidance to businesses. We can naturally debate the lateness of this, but we finally, at last, have some “support”…

Here are some useful resources that have just been launched that allow businesses to access a range of information:

EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification) Number

HMRC appear to be writing to all businesses giving them an EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification) Number. This number is required if you are trading with the EU. You will not be able to move goods in and out of the UK without one.
