Is the EORI number actually required in any of the documents from HMRC when applying for VAT reclaims?

Question

I have recently started shipping outside of the EU on an irregular basis. After some research i found that I should be using a EORI number for customs declaration. However my shipping agents who ship to Bangladesh offer me reasonable prices but do not want the EORI number.

Is the EORI number actually required in any of the documents from HMRC when applying for VAT reclaims (as I’m exporting at zero rate)

Or will the shipping invoices and product invoices suffice?
