Simplified coding for GMR (faster too!)

For the GMR process, your carrier will require one of the following (or a combination of these if multiple consignments):-

  • Import entry number
  • Transit document MRN
  • EIDR approved EORI number
  • ATA Carnet number (exhibition goods)

For non-controlled goods, using our EIDR approval and following specific confirmation from us, there is no need to have the import entry number. You only need our approved EORI number. Send load information to us so we can validate and if all is in order, we will issue authorisation to use our EIDR approval - it literally takes minutes and is much smoother at the border. Your carrier will thank you!


"We MUST have an import entry number!"

We hear this a lot and it's not correct.

The image is a screenshot of the GMR creation process.  Sure enough import entry number is the first option, but it is not the only option!

For non-controlled goods we use our approved EIDR process (third option on the screen).   This is completely acceptable to HMRC and is much faster at the frontier.  

If your carrier insists on an import entry number, they might not understand the GMR process as well as we do.   Point them to this page!
