Check an EORI number

A business needs a valid EORI number to move goods between Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) and other countries. They also need one to move goods from Northern Ireland to non-EU countries.

Use this service to check if an EORI number beginning with GB (issued by the UK) is valid.

This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).

You can also see the name and address of the business that the EORI number is registered to, if they agreed to share this information.

This service only checks EORI numbers beginning with GB.

If the EORI number you have starts with XI or any other letters, check non-GB EORI numbers online.
