EORI – what is it and how to get it?

What is the EORI number for, and do I need it?

EORI number is an identification number for EU legal persons and individuals who trade with non-EU countries. This number is used for communication with the customs offices all over the EU. Having EORI is obligatory, it doesn’t matter if you import/export to/from the Czech Republic. EORI number contains the same information of your Czech tax registration number DIC.

When you have EORI, you basically have the right to import and export goods to non-EU countries, and from non-EU countries.

This number is unique and also available to the public. So, you can also check for someone’s EORI on the internet.
There is also another type of EORI that can be managed online – EORI ad hoc, this type usually has someone who applied as a non-obligatory for EORI and is not a legal person, nor an individual.

How to get EORI?

Application has to be done in a state where is your business residency. If you have your residency here, then you can apply at any customs office in the Czech Republic. You can also apply electronically. EORI number is an identification number for EU legal persons and individuals who trade with non-EU countries.
