EORI-Registration-in-Czech-Republic.jpgEORI refers to a unique number of identification through which businesses established within the European Union’s boarder can be recognized. EORI stands for Economic Operators Registration and Identification. The EORI number is given by the customs authorities established in the European Union (EU). Our team of Czech lawyers can assist local and foreign investors with information referring to the EORI number and its utility for businesses. 


EORI number and its main purpose

The customs authorities are allowed to issue EORI numbers for legal entities and natural persons. The main advantage or receiving this identification number is the ease of access within the EU space, as the registration is valid in any member state of the EU. 
The EORI number is used by local authorities to verify the import-export activities carried out in each country. For businesses, the EORI number is useful when declaring the trade relationship with countries which are not members of the EU zone. 
The EORI number was introduced in 2009 and in Czech Republic it became applicable since 1st of July 2009, which obligated all economic operators to register for EORI; our team of Czech attorneys can offer further information related to the enforcement of EORI directive


Legal requirements of the Czech EORI 

Foreigners who want to set up a company in Czech Republic will receive a Czech EORI number if the business is registered as a Czech company. Economic operators established in Czech Republic will receive an EORI number by filling an application. 
The Czech EORI number is established following the next pattern: the first two letter designating the country – in this case, Czech Republic is represented by “cz”, followed by 11 numbers. 
An important aspect is that branches of foreign companies operating in Czech Republic or in any other state of the EU are not eligible to receive an EORI number, as the registration is available only once, for the legal entity under which the branch operates. 
Persons interested in receiving further information on the EORI registration in Czech Republic can address to our Czech law firm for assistance.
