Additional VAT report

What does this report contain?

Additional VAT report contains information on your non-Amazon sales, refunds, returns, credits, EU cross-border stock movements and purchases. It can also already contain your non-calculated Amazon transactions in some cases. See What are non-calculated transactions? to learn more.

Also, in the Additional VAT Report, you will need to provide details of sales made to business buyers on Amazon, in which a buyer contacted you after the sale to provide you with their VAT number so that you could invoice accordingly.

Information on the following transaction types should be included in the report:

  • Non-Amazon Sale: Buyer purchases good(s) from you on an off-Amazon channel. If you have any Multi-Channel-Fulfilment (MCF) transactions, you also need to provide that information here.
  • Non-Amazon Refund: All off-Amazon channel transactions, where either a refund is made without the goods being returned to you or the goods are returned at a later date, need to be provided.
  • Non-Amazon Return: This should be declared for return of goods by an off-Amazon channel buyer to your fulfilment centre, when the refund of those goods has been declared separately. This transaction is solely to record the movement of goods that are returned to you.
  • Non-Amazon Credit: If you have details in the same reporting period of both the refund that you made for the items returned by your off-Amazon channel buyers (refund) and the movement of returned goods to your fulfilment centre (return), you can declare these together.
  • Purchase: All purchases made in your VAT Services on Amazon-subscribed countries. This includes, for example, purchases of stock from a local supplier and any other local costs that are incurred. Even if a supplier did not charge you VAT, for example on an intra-Community supply of goods to you in one of the VAT Services on Amazon-subscribed countries, these might need to be declared in your foreign VAT return. Note that you are also able to declare the import VAT paid to the customs authorities in VAT Services on Amazon-subscribed countries. In principle, VAT paid on purchases and imports can be offset against the local VAT charged to your customers. Exceptions to this rule might exist, some of these can be country specific.
  • Import: This should include all purchases or movements of your goods which were dispatched from outside the European Union into Amazon-subscribed countries. This includes, for example, the importation of goods directly into an Amazon-subscribed country, or the importation of goods through a European Union country. These could then be transported to an Amazon-subscribed country, either to fulfil a sale or to replenish stock. Note that you are also able to declare the import VAT paid to the customs authorities on VAT Services in Amazon-subscribed countries. In principle, VAT paid on imports can be offset against the local VAT charged to your customers. However, the treatment of import VAT may vary, as this will depend on the circumstances of the importation.
  • Stock Movement: This should include all movements of your goods between your fulfilment centres. You only need to declare your own stock movements that are outside of the Amazon Fulfilment Network.
  • Amazon B2C Cancelled: If a business only provided you with a VAT number after they received a sales invoice, the Amazon B2C sales invoice needs to be corrected. This can be done by issuing a credit note to this customer, thereby cancelling the original Amazon B2C invoice. You need to provide the details of the credit note here. This credit note should fully reflect the original invoice, i.e. the values and VAT amounts should be identical (the only difference is the sign).
  • Amazon B2B Corrected: If a business provided you with a VAT number after they received a sales invoice, the Amazon B2B sales invoice needs to be corrected. This can be done by a credit note and a new B2B invoice. You need to provide the details of the new invoice here. The new invoice should contain the Buyer VAT number and the necessary statements required on the invoice for B2B transactions. This correction could have an impact on your calculated VAT amount (e.g. in EU cross-border supplies of goods, and if local B2B reverse charge rules apply).

More details of the information to be included in the Additional VAT Report are available in the Transaction Type Help sheet in the Additional VAT Report template.
