We are an overseas company and have no UK address. We already got VAT # one month ago, but have no EORI yet. When I apply EORI online, the system needs UK postcode. How overseas company solve this problem?

Are you certain you didn’t ask for your EORI at the same time you applied for VAT? This is the normal process for new VAT registered businesses. It is worth checking one hasn’t already been issued by using the EORI checker on line . Search for GB followed by you VAT number and 000.

On the online EORI application there should be the option to select that you are an overseas trader.

As you have a UK VAT number you may need to enter the UK address that you used to register.

Any issues please contact the EORI team here: 

Thank you.
