We've touched on the topic of sales tax several times in this blog. Most recently, Amazon added new service providers to the sales tax program in January. However, the latest announcement is not about providers within the services, but about a sales tax manual. In it, Amazon sellers can gain useful information on the subject. What exactly awaits you there, you will learn in this article. In addition, we will inform you about a currently running special offer. But first, we'll explain what the Amazon sales tax program actually is.
The Sales Tax Program, or Sales Tax Services, is designed to help sellers comply with the regulations of each country in which they sell. You can hire service providers for up to seven countries through the program. These include Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom.
If you want to learn more about the topic away from the program, you can find the basics regarding the tax return and process in Amazon's Sales Tax Handbook. This way, you can better approach the complex background. Since the Sales Tax Handbook was created with the help of input from Amazon sellers, it is very well geared towards possible questions on your part. Accordingly, after studying the manual, you will even be able to do the filing yourself in theory. If you still have questions about the manual, feel free to write us a message.
You can currently save a lot by registering for the VAT program! While it used to cost 300 euros, you now only have to pay 50 euros. The prices apply per country in which you register. You will then receive a VAT identification number, an EU or EORI number and sworn translations. If you register for five countries, you can also register for free in two additional countries.
