Dear Seller,

We are writing to inform you that the United Kingdom (UK) Value Added Tax (VAT) legislation may affect you.

How does this impact you?

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is tracking VAT compliance, and under UK law, Amazon is required to disclose select seller account data on request if HMRC believes a seller may not be compliant.

HMRC can inform websites such as Amazon Marketplace if it believes a seller is in breach of VAT regulation and require that we stop the seller from selling through and that we remove the account.

As per Amazon’s Terms and Conditions, sellers on Amazon must comply with all applicable laws including VAT regulations.

How to avoid potential interruptions of your online business?

If you have any questions about your VAT compliance, we recommend that you consult with your tax advisor now to understand your VAT obligations and take appropriate action to avoid any risk of your account being suspended due to VAT non-compliance. If you would like to refer to a list of tax advisors who can provide additional guidance, including discounted VAT consultancy rates available for Amazon sellers, please visit our VAT page.

If you are required to be VAT registered in the UK as well as other European countries where you operate, please remember to enter your VAT numbers in your Seller Profile in your Amazon Seller Account as soon as available.
