Who needs an EORI number in Cyprus?

McMillan Cyprus > Articles > Who needs an EORI number in Cyprus?

The Economic Operators Registration Identification (EORI) system was enabled in 2009 at European Union level. The purpose of the EORI system is to assign a unique registration number to economic operators working with Customs authorities throughout the European Union.

In Cyprus, all companies and sole traders involved in cross-border trading activities are required to obtain an EORI reference number. The EORI number resembles the Cypriot VAT number in order to avoid changes in the tax and Customs’ operating systems.

The EORI number is assigned to both Cypriot importers and exporters and is used for processing entry and exit declaration with the Customs authorities for shipments in and outside the European Union. The EROI number is displayed to all EU Customs authorities and the system is interconnected.
