General information about declaring details of the parties
Every party in the declaration must have an identification number, either an EORI number or some other unique identifier.
The holder of the transit procedure and the representative must always have an EORI number. As for other parties, you can either provide the identification number or fill in the name and address details of the party. The service will automatically fill in the name and address details based on the EORI number you have provided.
The EORI number of a Finnish business is a trader identification number consisting of the Business ID and the country code (FI1234567-8). You can check the validity of the company’s EORI number in the Commission’s EORI number validation service. Apply for the EORI registration from Customs in advance, if you need it.
In addition to the identification number, you can also provide the trader office code issued by Customs. A representative must always provide their trader office code. If you provide the trader office code in the declaration, the service automatically completes, in the declaration details to be archived by Customs, the address details already entered in Customs’ customer register on the basis of earlier authorisation details. You can check your trader office code in our “My details” service.
Under “Holder of the transit procedure” and “Representative”, some of the details will be displayed automatically when you tick the box “Use the details of the authenticated trader”. The address details according to the trader office code will then be completed in the declaration. As default, the address of the business’s head office according to the Finnish Business Information System BIS is displayed as the trader office address details (trader office code “000”). In the case of a foreign business, the address used when registering for EORI may be displayed instead. If you have entered the trader office code of some other office than the head office in the settings, the service retrieves the address details according to that trader office code.
The contact person is the submitter of the declaration. Customs may contact the contact the contact person for additional information.
If you have saved your details in advance in the settings, you can tick the box “Use the details of the authenticated person”, and the field for trader office code will be completed automatically. If you are not using the details of the authenticated person, enter your name, email address and phone number in the fields.

The holder of the transit procedure is responsible for ensuring that the details provided in the declaration are correct.
If you are not using the details of the authenticated trader, provide an EORI number or a private individual’s personal identity code as the identification number. When you have entered the EORI number, the service will automatically complete the fields for name and address details as well as trader nature.

If you are lodging the declaration as a representative, add your details under “Representative” by clicking on the button “+Add representative”. A forwarding agency, for example, can act as a representative. The representative must always have an EORI number if the representative is a company.
