EORI Number in Estonia

EORI number in EstoniaEORI is a unique number required for companies engaged in international trade in the European Union. Since July 1, 2009, an EORI number is mandatory for companies involved in international trade in case of import, transit, export or other customs procedures in order to identify the company throughout the European Union.

The EORI number is mandatory for economic operators engaged in the importation, transit, exportation or other customs operations.

A duly authorised management Board member or an accountant of the company can apply for an EORI number.

The EORI number is issued by the customs agencies of the member state in which it is established. Entrepreneurs established outside the customs territory of the union must be registered at the customs offices of the member state of the union, where they carry out or plan to carry out their very first customs operation. In Estonia, the EORI number is issued by the Tax and Customs Department.

One person can only have one (valid) EORI number and this unique number should be used for all Customs operations in the European Union and for any Customs-related activity.

A subsidiary must use the parent company’s EORI number.
