All operators and ATLAS users need to have an EORI number because without it they could not be identified in ATLAS. This is why, in the past, an EORI numbers were also assigned to a company’s branches, operating sites, or permanent establishments, that is unincorporated divisions which do not have their own legal capacity. The EU has been tolerating this practice for a transitional period.
