FBA Donations programme

The FBA Donations program makes it possible for you to automatically donate your unwanted inventory to selected charitable organizations.

How it works

When you request disposal of overstock, returned, or other unwanted FBA inventory, we make it available for donation to selected charities. Amazon makes the arrangements with the charities, helping to remove logistics, language and cost barriers to donating your unwanted inventory. Donating your inventory may allow you to benefit from special VAT exemptions for donations. Usual disposal fees apply.

You can choose to discontinue donating your FBA products at any time by changing your FBA Settings.

You can track donated items in your Amazon VAT Transaction Report . Download the report and look for items marked Donation in the Transaction type field.

Note: The UK allows the donation of goods to registered UK charities to be zero-rated for VAT when the goods will be sold, leased or exported by the charity. This means that if you make a qualifying donation, there will be no VAT reportable on the goods donated. Further information is available in the VAT Notice 701/1 under Section 5.5.4. Contact your tax advisor to discuss how this might impact your own tax reporting obligations.

Donation receipts for the donated inventory will be available starting in January, for donations made in the previous year. A link will be provided to the donation receipts in Seller Central.
