Trading with the UK

One of the most practical steps businesses who trade with the UK can take is ensuring they have customs registration, known as an EORI number (Economic Operators Registration and Identification). 

Having an EORI number is a necessary first step in being able to trade with the UK post Brexit.  

You request this number through the Revenue Commissioners. This is the link on Revenue’s website to apply for an EORI number.

According to the Department of Finance, you should also:

  • Consider how you will make your customs declarations and if you require a customs agent to assist you, post Brexit
  • Talk to the businesses who transport your goods or products to help you identify your supply chain
  • Determine the origin and Commodity Code of your goods or products.
