VAT Registered businesses post Brexit
The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020. From 1 February 2020, the UK enters a transition period that lasts until 31 December 2020.
VAT registered businesses who trade with the European Union are required to register for an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number. This application can be done online via this website www.gov.uk/eori
There will also be a requirement to make customs declarations following the end of the transition period. Businesses are advised to start planning for this e.g. buy appointing someone to deal with customs on their behalf.
