If you import or export 

  • Watch HMRC’s hour long webinar about 5 key areas UK businesses must be aware of to keep trading goods when the UK leaves the EU        
  • Review UK Government’s publications on Trading with the EU     
  • If you are an importer or exporter you must have an Economic Registration and Identification (EORI) number to continue to trade with the EU. If you don’t already have yours, you can get an EORI number on GOV.UK. Having an EORI number is just the first step to continue to import or export. Follow these import and export processes to trade with EU and non-EU countries.
