General information about declaring details of the parties
The declarant and the representative must have an EORI number. The service will automatically fill in the name and address details based on the EORI number. As for other operators, you can provide the ID number or fill in the name and address details of an operator.
The EORI number of a Finnish business is a trader identification number consisting of the Business ID and the country code (FI1234567-8). Apply for the EORI registration from Customs in advance, if you need it.
In addition to this identifier 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 identifier in our “My details” service.
Under “Declarant” 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 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.
