As of 12 July 2020, 241,018 businesses have registered for a UK EORI number since December 2018, including both VAT and non-VAT-registered businesses. This includes traders who were automatically issued a number. Over 700,000 UK EORI numbers have been issued in total.

Businesses who have yet to register can do so online. It is a simple process that only takes 10 minutes.
