Many Amazon Business customers have stated that they require invoices from a single seller of record. To support this request, Amazon enables you to sell inventory to Amazon Business EU SARL (ABEU) and for ABEU to re-sell it instantly to a business customer when they place an order on Amazon Business. By buying and instantly re-selling your items, ABEU becomes the seller of record, making your inventory available to customers who would not otherwise purchase from a third-party seller.
You are eligible if you are a seller in either the United Kingdom or in one of the four European stores (Germany, France, Italy and Spain) and use Amazon’s VAT Calculation Services.
