Seeed Studio Fusion PCB "EORI" Number

(1/1)

David:
Hi all,

Has anyone purchased from Seed Studio using DHL shipping recently? It asks for an EORI number, however it does let you proceed without one. I assume you do not need to enter it unless you have one?

I got a headache over this recently and eventually just used EMS.

There is an application form to get an EORI here: http://search2.hmrc.gov.uk/kb5/hmrc/forms/view.page?record=vx_L5bRZb-c&formid=7127

I honestly, after a few hours of googling, still don't really know how it works. I think you need one for each shipment and you have to talk to HMRC, the courier, the supplier etc all at once. I don't think you can proceed without one, either.

David:
I feel better knowing I'm not the only one! I was having the same thoughts about using EMS too...

Bored@Work:
The EORI number is not required for importing stuff as individual in a private capacity (there are rare exceptions).

As a business you need on. You get it from your local customs authorities in the EU. It is not per shipment, but per business.
