What Will Happen To Amazon Sellers After Brexit?

We are pet products manufacturers, we want to share the tips about the EORI for the pet product sellers.

German EORI number

The Europe EOS system will upgrade its system from 11th April to 13th April. In that period, all external service will be out of. All the EORI application or changes need to deal with through German customs Dresden before 9th April or after April.

If the Brexit postponed or canceled, the system upgrade will be canceled automatically.

Below are tips for the Amazon sellers-

1.What about the GB EORI?

Many sellers’ EORI numbers start with GB, and one EORI number can solve all the clearance problems through entire Europe. But since the EORI is universal and unique, so it doesn’t work in the UK. Sellers should apply other EU country’s EORI asap. German is a huge market, we suggest applying the Germany EORI, which starts with DE.

2. How to apply German EORI?

EORI needs to apply to customs, so sellers can make the application online, but need to provide the local address to accept the notification. Generally, the German EORI application takes 1-2 weeks, but there may be system accidents caused by the surge in demand. The application documents include German local tax ID number, German VAT tax number, German tax agency.

3. How to ship packages to German?

Since there isn’t any time. we suggest sellers who choose the air transportation channel to apply the EORI asap. As per the sellers who choose sea transportation can choose the supervision warehouse clearance asap. Or deliver the packages to the Netherlands and then transported to German. Once the DE EORI is available, the packages can be delivered directly to the German FBA.

4. Do you still send packages to the UK?

Since there are many packages finished the clearance in the UK, and then transported to other countries. So before the Brexit, it’s best to drop this solution.

5. Do I need other countries EORI?

If you plan to ship the packages to France, Italy, Spain, we also suggest you applying local EORI. Because theoretically, the DE EORI works when clearing the packages in France, Italy, Spain. But there are always some unexpected accidents, you are required the local EORI to clear the packages from customs.
