Do you have to pay for an EORI number?

Paying for an EORI number.

Didn't find your answer?

A VAT registered client has just informed me that he's paid to get an EORI number so that a client of his, based in California, will trade with him.  I don't have much knowledge on trading inside and outside of the EU, but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have to pay for one. Is this correct? And could someone please explain to me in layman's terms the need for an EORI number whether a business is, or is not, VAT registered. 

Thanking you in advance.

Economic Operator Registration and Identification scheme has since 2009 run throughout the EU and if you get a number in one Member State it i valid throughout EU. There is NO charge for an EORI number and you do not need to be VAT registered to get a number.

It is a Customs number and is supposed to enhance security measures for imported goods - never sure how but that is the EU for you!!
