EU members

  • For sales – Suppliers based in the EU will need to invoice Liv-ex’s EU entity with our EU VAT number
  • For purchases – EU buyers (currently collecting from our London warehouse) are advised to collect wines from a Liv-ex warehouse in the EU (Bordeaux and Brussels)

Additional clarifications and exceptions:

  • EMCS documents that are currently generated / destined to our London warehouse will need to be made to the Liv-ex warehouse in Brussels (which has a different excise warehouse number)
  • EU buyers will need to review their collection locations:
    • Our London warehouse will no longer enjoy EU status and will require EU buyers to clear into Europe themselves
    • Collections from our warehouses in Brussels and Bordeaux will continue to enjoy EU status and will remain EMCS as is now (this option is recommended)
  • Buyers in Belgium will need to provide an EORI number in addition to current arrangements
