  • A mortgage statement
  • A lease or rental agreement 
  • A work permit or Visa
  • Any correspondence from the Department of Work and Pensions confirming entailment to benefits
  • A recent utility bill
  • A birth certificate 

Elaboration on few questions: 

"Will the business trade VAT-taxable goods with countries outside the UK?" 

- If you intend to deliver goods from UK to EU, "YES"

- If you only intend to sell in UK, "NO"


"Do you need an EORI number?"

In reality EORI number is only required if you participate in customs process and 99% do not and even that 1% should not. BUT: some logistics companies insist on you having the EORI number.

Getting one is free, so you might as well get it if you answered "Yes" to the previous one.
