Starting January 1, 2021, there will be a customs border between the UK and the EU that will affect businesses working across the border. You will need to obtain both UK and EU EORI (Economic Operators Registration and Identification) numbers to move inventory into or out of the UK and the EU countries from January 1, 2021. A single EU EORI number will be sufficient for all EU countries.
As part of our commitment to support your business in the UK and the EU, we are offering a free one-year subscription to VAT services on Amazon. The VAT compliance solution allows you to manage your European VAT registration and filing obligations through a third-party tax service provider. VAT services on Amazon can handle your registration in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic. You can also obtain both UK and EU EORI numbers free of charge*.
*Free EORI service is provided by your tax service provider. Your tax service provider will also determine the appropriate country in the EU to apply for an EU EORI number.
