Dear Customers,

You may not be aware that we offer a Service where you can obtain an EORI Number within three working days!

The Economic Operator Registration and Identification Number (EORI) is an EU initiative that helps traders communicate with customs officials when they are importing and exporting goods.

If you are importing or exporting goods you MUST have an EORI Number. This is required to allow customs to check what you are bringing into the Country, and will also allow them to tie up duty and VAT invoices etc.

Importers and exporters are able to register for an EORI number which is valid throughout the EU. They can use this number in communications with any customs authorities in the EU, for example in customs declarations where a customs identifier is required.

The price for us to assist with obtaining an EORI Number is: 38.50GBP

Please see further details below:

– It usually takes the authorities up to 3 working days for your application to be processed
– Once your application has been approved, you will be able to use your EORI number within 24 hours

If you would like any further information regarding an EORI Number, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be more than happy to assist you.

In United Kingdom, company limited by shares is the most common form of company for trading and doing business. A company limited by shares has a share capital which is divided into a number of shares of certain value each. Some or all of the shares are then held by investors, which are known as the shareholders of the company. If the company is prosperous and makes good profits, the company will then distribute dividend to the shareholders in accordance with their respective shareholdings. If the company suffers a loss, the shareholders will, at the most, lose all their investment in the shares of the company. In other words, their liabilities are limited to the value of the shares.

The most common ways of establishing a charitable organization in United Kingdom are through the use of:
a) A trust
b) A society established under the Societies Ordinance (Cap 151)
c) A company incorporated under the Companies Ordinance (Cap 32)

A company limited by guarantee is a company which is often used as a device for setting up of a club, association, school or charitable body. The liability of its members is limited to the amount which they agree to contribute to its assets in the event of the company being wound up.


The most popular method for establishing a charity is a Company Limited by Guarantee under the Companies Ordinance of United Kingdom (Cap 32), which allows for greater transparency and legitimacy in establishing a charity in United Kingdom. The draft incorporation documents for a United Kingdom company are submitted at the same time as the application for Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance Cap 112 tax exemption status to the Inland Revenue Department for pre-approval.

Under United Kingdom law a charity must be established exclusively for charitable purposes and as such must fall into the following categories:

a) Relief of poverty;
b) Advancement of education;
c) Advancement of religion; and

d) Other purposes of a charitable nature beneficial to the community not falling under any of above categories. (For example, this may include charities with the purpose of providing care and protection to animals or for the provision of specific medical purposes such as cancer research.)

It has been already 4 years since I have been chosen to represent Czech Republic as the entrepreneur ( 20 in total) in EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OF ENTERPRISES 2008. It allowed businessmen and businesswomen to become Members of the European Parliament for one day, debate and vote on some of the most crucial topics currently at the heart of the political debate. If you are an entrepreneur one of the EU country and would like to rise your hand and say your opinion in the Hemicycle infront of 750 fellows, send a request to your chamber of commerce.

What does it mean an offshore or being an offshore? Offshore company!

Offshore territory is any jurisdiction except your resident one ( where you currently live) mostly known for the legal, tax and financial benefits or from the company management point of view. It might be UK (not only UK others countries are offshore) once you live in Luxembourg or USA (not only USA others countries are offshore) once you live in China. It’s quite simple isn’t it?


To be offshore in banking industry means to have a bank account in  different country than you reside.


It would be fine to mention what does it mean to be “onshore”. Onshore might be regarded as the jurisdiction where a company is domiciled and in which it pays a significant rate of tax. There is even a term in resource management when founder comes to low cost country (e.g. as China) and will use the advantage of the low labor cost.


Nowadays, I would like to more stress not just the offshore or onshore matter but the globalization taking an effect in trading and IT industry. Tthere is now quite easy way to start your own business with really low costs as was mentioned before e.g.: open International Business Company  in Seychelles + find your product ( good or service) + set up web and launch business into 48 hours.


It’s simple, isn’t it?
