Tax Registration in germany


Hi everybody

I got this email from amazon saying that we might need to register it Germany to get a tax ID
now we are based in Israel and sell to Germany on amazon DE we dont hold any inventory in the EU
so i asked amazon on this but didnt get any real answer just to consult a tax adviser which i did and the answer was that i dont need to be registered but i am not sure how familiar he is in German tax laws

does anybody here have an idea about this?
thanks in advance


There are already multiple long threads with many posts about it.

Here is one of them:

But you should know that you are required to register for the VAT and the German Tax Certificate anyway, as a seller based outside of the EU shipping into Germany.

There is no treshold for non-EU sellers and it doesn’t matter whether you store inventory in Germany or not.
