so I got an email from Amazon saying “Pending account block: Upload your UK VAT Number”.
You may be legally required to be VAT registered in the United Kingdom (UK) based on your Amazon activity.
Under UK VAT legislation, all online marketplaces must prevent non-UK businesses that are storing products in the UK, from offering products for sale after the marketplace becomes aware that the business is not meeting its UK VAT registration requirement.
We are required to verify that you are VAT registered in the UK. Please upload your UK VAT registration number to Seller Central within the next 4 days."
I have learned today that by signing in for a PAN European FBA I have to register for VAT in 7 countries. So convenient that they did not warn me before. How in the earth am I supposed to get UK VAT number in four days?
And my biggest concern and question is will my account be blocked in general or just for the UK market?
Thank you in advance for the answers!
