VAT Services on Amazon Online Agreement

Last updated: May 31, 2020

The English version of this agreement is the definitive legal version. Translations into other languages are available for your ease of reference only.

The use of and access to tax services provided by third parties on Seller Central are subject to (i) the terms and conditions below (the “Terms”) between you (“you” or “your”) and Amazon Services Europe S.à.r.l. (“we”, “us” or “Amazon”); and (ii) your agreement with the third-party service provider that performs tax services on your behalf (each a “Tax Agent”, and your agreement with the Tax Agent, the “Tax Agent Terms”). You agree to all of these terms by using the services described below.

  1. Definitions: Unless otherwise provided in these Terms, all capitalised terms are as defined in the Amazon Services Europe Business Solutions Agreement (the “BSA”).
  1. Services: It is the Tax Agent that is solely responsible for the provision of tax services, which may include assistance with (i) VAT registrations (document submission and lodging); (ii) VAT return, Intrastat and ESL compliance report preparation; (iii) VAT return submission; (iv) Intrastat and ESL compliance reporting; and (v) any associated translations or required government filing fees associated with (i) to (iv) (the “Tax Services”). Amazon gives you access to an interface in Seller Central that helps you interact with the Tax Agent and provides technology that can help you and the Tax Agent consolidate your transactions details and manage your VAT compliance obligations more conveniently (the “Additional Services”).
  1. License and Use: Subject to your compliance with your obligations under these Terms, we grant you a revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable, non-transferrable right to use and access any features and functionalities in relation to the Additional Services for the duration of these Terms (“License”). Your use of and access to the Additional Services is limited to your internal, normal professional purposes in using the applicable Amazon Site, with exclusion of any other use or access.
  1. Fee Payments: To use the services described in the preceding section you will be charged the fees and charges described here (i) for Tax Services purchased from the Tax Agent (“Tax Agent Fees”) and (ii) for the Additional Services (“Additional Services Fee”; collectively with the Tax Agent Fees, “Fees”. You authorise us, including our affiliates Amazon Payments Europe S.C.A. (“APE”) and Amazon Payments UK Limited (“APUK”) where applicable, (and will provide documentation evidencing your authorisation upon our request) to charge the Fees, or any portion thereof, to the credit card on file (“Your Credit Card”), the bank account on file or debit any of your payment account(s) held with APE and/or APUK, in each case provided for the provision of services under the BSA. The Fees may be automatically deducted where applicable, for any sums payable by us to you (in reimbursements or otherwise). In addition to charging payable sums as referred to in this section, we may (a) offset any amounts that are payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise) against any payments made to you under these Terms or the BSA; (b) invoice you for amounts due under these Terms or the BSA, in which case you will pay the invoiced amounts upon receipt.
  1. Your Information: You authorise and instruct us to provide to the Tax Agents and our affiliates as applicable: (i) any information we hold about you, Your Products or Your Transactions required by the Tax Agent to provide you Tax Services, and (ii) reports, calculations, tax returns, and any other information about you, your products or transactions that you make available to Amazon at any time.
  1. No Professional Advice: The Additional Services do not constitute, and Amazon does not give, tax, legal, or other professional advice. You should consult your tax advisor to help you understand your VAT obligations.
  1. Disclaimer: The Additional Services are provided for your convenience only and you bear full responsibility to determine the applicability and accuracy of the information generated by Amazon, including all calculation, invoicing, tax reporting and any other tax-related obligations.
  1. Relationship: The contractual relationship for the Tax Services is exclusively between you and the Tax Agent. We do not have any authority to act on your behalf beyond the activities described in these Terms or any other agreement you have entered into with us. For the avoidance of doubt, you acknowledge and agree that Amazon has no obligations (including fiduciary obligations) as your agent. Amazon and the Tax Agents are independent contractors.
  1. Additional Terms: The Additional Services are subject to these Terms and the BSA. We may at any time cease providing or giving access to any or all of these Additional Services at our sole discretion and without notice. This is without prejudice to the relevant Tax Agent Terms that may remain in force.
  1. Data Processing: To the extent that we act as a processor under the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 ("GDPR") (or any other applicable law with respect to the protection of personal data and any data protection laws substantially amending, replacing or superseding the GDPR following the exit by the United Kingdom from the European Union) in relation to any personal data that you give us regarding your sales or transactions via channels other than Amazon, including your own website if applicable, the VAT Services on Amazon Data Processing Addendum available here will apply.
  1. Modification: These Terms supersede any prior version of the Terms (by reference to date last updated) governing your use of VAT Services on Amazon. We may modify these Terms at any time at our sole discretion. Any changes will be effective upon our notice to you in accordance with the BSA, including via email or by publishing applicable materials on Seller Central or the Amazon Site.
  1. Termination: These Terms will automatically terminate upon: (i) the termination of the BSA, (ii) the termination of the relevant Tax Agent Terms, or (iii) notice by us at our sole discretion.
