According to the amendments in the German VAT Code (Sec. 22f UStG), Amazon must obtain a Tax Certificate from sellers who are required to be tax registered in Germany. This also applies to sellers who are already VAT registered in Germany.
This above message has been mentioned before on here. I filled in the declaration saying we did not need to register for VAT in Germany.
We have turned our sales to france, spain, italy, and germany on permanent holiday setting. We never had huge sales anyway, and got fed up with too many INR.
We have some items FBA which I thought we had closed as well.
To my surprise 5 minutes after filling in amazon declaration i noticed an FBA sale on amazon.it, I looked and the listing is there, translated in Italian.
When i look to each europlean marketplace our FBA listings are there. How to we turn these countries off? Do i go into amazon.de > FBA inventory - and close the listings and do the same for other countries or is there another way to turn all these listings off? Most of the listings are actually inactive but I’m worried if we ship more in to FBA they will end up on the other european marketplaces again so we need to end them before falling foul of amazon or european VAT regulations.
We have taken over this company back in march and are now approaching need to register for VAT in UK so don’t want to get complicated with other european VAT right now.
