Important Update: Changes to HMRC’s EORI Number Guide for VAT Deregistered Businesses

  • HMRC has updated its EORI number change or cancellation guide
  • Businesses will lose EORI numbers if they deregister for VAT
  • EORI numbers are required for authorisations and licences
  • Businesses must contact the relevant office if they need to continue using an authorisation or licence after deregistering for VAT
  • Businesses can apply for a new GB EORI number and potentially an XI EORI number
