VAT Calculation Service

With the VAT Calculation Service, you can show Amazon Business customers prices excluding VAT, have the Downloadable VAT Invoice badge displayed next to your name on the product detail and offer listings pages, and provide Amazon Business customers with invoices automatically. Amazon Business customers are more likely to make purchases if they receive an automatic invoice.

Once the VAT Calculation Service is activated, you will have access to detailed reports that will support you in fulfilling your obligations regarding VAT returns.

Invoicing for orders received on Amazon's European marketplaces

The VAT Calculation Service is available to Amazon seller at no additional cost. It generates invoices for Amazon orders for which customers have provided a personal tax code or VAT number. The service also includes the creation of XML (Electronic Invoice) invoices and credit notes in the case of Italian B2B sellers and customers based in Italy. For customers who have not provided a tax code or VAT number, the system will issue a receipt.

Amazon's VAT Calculation Service automatically creates invoices and credit notes to the customer in the name and on behalf of the seller who is legally the issuer. The calculation of VAT and the automatic generation of invoices occurs for all orders shipped after the date of activation of the service. Therefore, the seller will no longer have to personally issue invoices and credit notes for orders and all transactions executed after registration for the service.

Please note, any changes to your product tax code assignments may take up to 24 hours to take effect when displaying VAT exclusive price on the Product Detail Pages.
