Ready for Brexit

Exporting to UK?

First, it is necessary to apply for the registration and identification number of economic operators, the so-called EORI. Registration for EORI is simple and companies can implement it via the Financial Report website https://www.financnasprava.sk/sk/podnikatelia/clo-obchodny-tovar/EORI). Activation can take up to three days. However, without EORI numbers, goods exported to the United Kingdom will be detained.

Companies shipping to the UK should also look for HS codes for products they want to export outside the EU (see http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_custo). These codes allow the customs authorities to find out what your product is and what VAT or customs duty should be charged on the goods.

When preparing goods outside the European Union, it is also necessary to adjust the commercial or pro forma invoice. It must contain information on the goods used by the customs authorities to determine the amount or taxes. A commercial invoice is used when the goods are the subject of another commercial transaction or resale.

A pro forma invoice is used when sending goods without commercial value (samples).
