As of 3 May, 2,089 businesses successfully received their separate IDs allowing them to sell tobacco under the new track and trace legislation, according to a spokesperson from HM Revenue & Customs. 

They said: “From 30 April, the UK ID issuer, De La Rue, started accepting requests for economic operator identifier codes (EOIDs) from all businesses involved in the supply of cigarettes and hand rolling tobacco, including independent retailers. 

“A large number of retailers have opted for their supplier to request an economic operator identifier code on their behalf. These bulk applications are currently being processed.”

The deadline to receive an ID is 20 May.
