End to GB UNREG for UK Importers and Exporters

HMRC has announced that the use of GB UNREG will no longer be allowed for UK importers and exporters from mid 2015. GB UNREG was often used by companies that did not have VAT numbers and only imported or exported very occasionally. All UK companies importing or exporting goods will now be required to have an EORI number. In the past freight forwarders have been able to apply for EORI numbers on behalf of their customers, but under the new rules the customer will be required to complete their own application form.

Certain goods will still be accepted under GBPR.
