If you want to ship to countries outside the EU, you need a so-called EORI number. EORI stands for Economic Operators' Registration and Identification. This identification number is required for customs clearance. When shipping to the UK, the following EORI numbers are required:
- From the commercial exporter in the EU;
- From the commercial importer in the UK.
For more information on how to apply for an EORI number, please visit the Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst) website.
