Any business which does not have an EORI number post-Brexit, will not be able to continue to trade with EU Member States.
More than 88,000 VAT registered companies across the UK will be allocated an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number by the HMRC in order to keep trading with customers and suppliers in the EU after Brexit.
If a business is not VAT-registered, it will not have an EORI number allocated automatically. However businesses will still need to register for an EORI number to be able to trade with customers and suppliers in EU Member States. They can do so by contacting HMRC online on www.gov.uk
