We are a french company operating leisure centers in France and about to launch our operations in the UK.
To expand in the UK we have recently created a UK subsidiary.
As the opening to the public of our fir UK center will take place on September 24th, we now need to ship asap from France to London some IT materials. To do so I would like to request a EORI number but I am unable to link it to a VAT number as we made the request but haven't received it yet (and probably won't receive it before few weeks).
How can I get a EORI without VAT number and make sure I can get back further this VAT on importation once we receive it (VAT number)?
Thank you for your help.
