HMRC has this morning issued a press release confirming that 88,000 VAT registered companies across the UK will be allocated EORI numbers so they can continue to trade with the EU post Brexit.  

Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid said:

"As the government accelerates its preparation to leave the EU on 31st October, it’s right businesses are prepared too. There can be no time for delay which is why HMRC has allocated thousands of businesses with a trading number to ensure they can continue to trade their goods through Europe from day one. This will help ease the flow of goods at border points and support businesses to trade and grow."
