Brexit & EORI Registrations

The UK formally left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. The current transition period, provided for in the Withdrawal Agreement, will end on 31 December 2020.

The outcome of the ongoing negotiations for a trade agreement between the EU and the UK, from 1 January 2021 has resulted in no tariffs to be levied on motor imports, however customs declarations will be required for the movement of products to, from, or through Great Britain (including Northern Ireland).

You can apply for an IE EORI number through the EORI registration process here on Revenue Online Service ROS
