When you use VAT Services on Amazon, monthly VAT filings become a four-step process:
Download and review your “Product Tax File” from the “Filings Set-up” page.
Ensure that all of your EU-28 VAT registration numbers have been added to your Seller Central account.
Confirm that your default shipping address in your Seller Central Settings is correct. You can check your default Seller Central shipping address by navigating to “Settings” and then “Shipping Settings” from the ribbon at the top of Seller Central. If you then select “General Shipping Settings”, you will see your default shipping address.
Update your default and item-specific Product Tax Codes, to ensure that you are assigning the correct VAT rate to your products. Find out more.
VAT Services on Amazon consolidates all of your Amazon transactions for the previous month into two reports – the Amazon VAT Transactions report and the Additional VAT report. Both of these reports will be ready for you to download from Seller Central once the VAT Services on Amazon filing preparation window opens. The filing preparation window generally opens at 10:00 CET on the 4th of the month and closes at 23:59 CET on the 7th of the month. You will receive an email at the beginning of each month that contains the exact dates of the upcoming filing preparation window, as this may be subject to change.
Update your Additional VAT Report by 23:59 CET on the final day of the filing preparation window. Refer to Additional VAT Report to find out more.
Using your VAT transaction reports, your tax agent will prepare your VAT filings for your review. Your tax agent will prepare your VAT filings based on the most recent VAT transaction reports, so that each time you update your data, the VAT filings will use the updated information.
Unless you have contacted us about the accuracy of any of your filings, your tax agent will submit your VAT filings to the tax authorities by the filing deadlines. Refer to Submission requirements for your VAT filings to find out more.
VAT Services on Amazon shows you the VAT amount due for the current VAT filings, and how to pay it. All you have to do is process the payment. Refer to Make VAT payments to find out more.
