Selling via Amazon’s Pan-European FBA service can give you continued access to European customers but it’s vital that you comply with the VAT obligations that come with it.
When to register for VAT?
When selling through Amazon Pan-EU, you will need to register for VAT. Knowing when to register isn’t straight forward so we’ve listed the most common reasons below. If you’re unsure whether you need to register, talk to a member of our team.
Holding stock within the EU
By using the Pan-EU scheme, you will be holding stock in a number of Amazon fulfilment warehouses. Holding stock in an EU country will trigger the need to register for VAT.
If based within the EU
You can register for the One Stop Shop (OSS) scheme, to report VAT due on any cross-border sales to countries where you not already VAT registered.
Importing goods into the EU
For the importation of goods into the EU you will need to register for VAT and you will also require an EORI number.
Where to register
Selling via the Amazon Pan-EU scheme with FBA will trigger VAT obligations in the following countries:
The Czech Republic
The United Kingdom
Amazon & The UK
As a result of the UK leaving the EU at the start of the year, Amazon has made some changes to the way they fulfil orders cross-border.
