Sellers who sign up for Amazon VAT services will begin paying a monthly fee right away, the marketplace informed sellers who list internationally in a post on the US Seller Central Announcement board. In August, Amazon had told UK sellers it would charge monthly fees only 6 months after signing up for the service.
The program is designed to help sellers stay compliant with European VAT (Value Added Tax) requirements.
Here’s a look at the full US announcement posted today, December 6th:
VAT Services on Amazon is updating its fee structure in 2022.
Starting January 1st 2022 Sellers joining the service will be charged a monthly fee starting at €33.30/month from the first month of filing (for one country, without fiscal representation) for VAT filings and fiscal representation.
VAT Services on Amazon is a VAT compliance solution that allows you to manage your European VAT registration and filing obligations via a third-party tax service provider in up to seven countries (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, and the Czech Republic).
