EORI-Registration-in-IrelandEORI numbers in Ireland

The Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) system is used by every Irish trader who interacts with the customs authorities in any European Union (EU) country; this number is also required when trading with countries outside the EU. Each economic operator is allocated with an unique reference number, called an EORI number, which will be used by the customs authorities in Ireland and other EU member states for identification.

The EORI system was introduced at the level of the EU, including in Ireland, following the provisions of the Regulation (EEC) No. 2913/92, amended by the Regulation (EC) No. 648/2005. Once a company or a business represented by a natural person received an EORI number, the respective code will be recognized at the level of the entire European Community.

EORI numbers have been introduced in Ireland since 2009 and they are used by Irish companies and sole traders involved in import and export activities. The EORI number is employed for the exchange of information between the customs authorities in the European Union, and where necessary, between the customs authorities and other authorities. However, the EORI number can be used for exchange purposes with the consent of the Irish owner. Our team of consultants in Irish company registration can help you obtain an EORI number.

The structure of the EORI number in Ireland

In order to avoid any confusion, the tax authorities have aligned the EORI number to the Irish VAT number. The EORI system is made up of two elements, one at national level where all Irish economic operators are registered and one at European level, where all EU economic operators are registered.

All Irish EORI numbers have the IE prefix in front followed by the company’s VAT number. Foreign operators applying for EORI registration in Ireland will be issued different numbers depending on the structure of their VAT numbersour team of specialists in company formation in Ireland can provide more details concerning this matter.   

The use of Irish EORI numbers

All Irish companies involved in cross-border activities are required to quote their EORI numbers or VAT numbers on electronic declarations. Economic operators are required to fill out electronic Single Administrative Document (SAD) declarations in which they will also insert their EORI numbers for both import and export procedures and then file the declarations with the Irish Revenue.

When completing the SAD declaration, the EORI number should be inserted into the boxes 2, 8 and 14 of this document. Irish companies will also be required to submit other documents related to the transport of goods. The same procedure is available for foreign economic operators coming to Ireland.

Disclosure of information of the EORI number in EU 

Those who are involved in import-export activities in Ireland should become familiarized with the requirements addressed to this field of activity. The issuance of an EORI number is a compulsory requirement for all businesses involved in trading activities registered after 2009 and it is important to know the following: 
  • the EORI number can be requested when performing trading activities with countries such as Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Moldova, Switzerland and Norway;
  • the Irish Revenue is required to provide information concerning any trader that has obtained a EORI number in Ireland to the European Commission (EC);
  • the EC holds an EU database comprised of the information offered on the EORI traders registered in each EU member state;
  • the Irish Revenue is required to provide regular updates on the EORI registrations concluded in the country.
