EORI stands for Economic Operator Registration Identification. The EORI number is a tax ID focused on trading and customs. The EORI number is used to identify economic operators within the European Union.
The EORI number is required in the following cases:
For non-EU traders and exporters, keep in mind that the EORI may take ten days to be issued by the Spanish tax office, depending on the country and port, so to avoid the trouble and cost of having your goods blocked in customs, you should apply for the EORI before you ship the goods.
The EORI number does not expire.
As soon as you provide us with the requested company documents, we will register your company to obtain your EORI number in Spain, and provide any follow-up services that you require.
