Czech Republic Importer of Record and IT Shipping

The Czech Republic, like many other EU countries, requires your Importer of Record to be knowledgeable about EORI and EU customs clearance.

Importer of Record and Pre-Shipment Documentation

Importer of Record

Like other locations in Europe, utilizing Importer of Record services in the Czech Republic is common. If you have an eligible entity with an import license, FGX can help you act as your own Importer of Record and assist in the VAT reclamation process once your shipment is finalized. If you are not eligible to act as your own Importer of Record or prefer to utilize an Importer of Record service, FGX can provide our services as part of our supply-chain solutions.


You will need an EORI number for any imports into the EU. Your EORI number allows customs to track your shipment throughout Europe and is an extension of your VAT number. Registering for your own VAT ID in the Czech Republic will enable you to submit VAT reclamations on eligible imports. Please read our VAT reclamation article here for more information.

IT Shipping & Logistics

The shipping and logistics process is relatively quick. Air freight only takes two to three days and is easy to secure, customs clearance takes about a day, and last-mile delivery within metro areas is next day. If you have a knowledgeable supply-chain provider you should be able to complete your shipment, end-to-end, within a week or less.

FGX manages all of our client’s shipments door-to-door (or door-to-datacenter). This case study showcases how we navigated IT logistics and importation into the Czech Republic at the time that it was written. Regulations and challenges are constantly changing and exact shipping requirements may have changed. To learn more about FGX and how our global shipping platform can help your company, reach out here.
