Important information for Hauliers regarding GVMS

As you are aware the Good Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) Registration service went live on 08/12/20 and we shared a link with you, to the Gov.uk pages as per this link Registration.

To register, you will need an EORI/UTR numbers and you will also need to input information such as your company name & address details.

If any of the data you supply does not match HMRC records, then your registration may be delayed or even rejected.

One key point is that you must use the same address for your GVMS registration that you have used for any other Government Gateway service enrolment and ensure the address information you provide is accurate.

If you do not , this will cause a delay in your registration application. Common errors with registration applications are:

  • Company address  or office address used only different Government Gateway accounts
  • Typing errors with address and postcode details – again any slight mis-match will cause a delay in your GVMS registration

If you already hold Government Gateway credentials, to avoid any delays to your registration there are some quick links where you can check your information:
