Wenn ein Amazon-Händler nicht die steuerrechtlichen Anforderungen in England erfüllt und die englische Steuerbehörde an Amazon die Meldung macht, erhält der Merchant eine ultimative Aufforderung vom Marktplatz-Betreiber. Diese Nachricht ist jetzt im britischem Amazon Sellerforum aufgetaucht.

You may no longer sell on Amazon.co.uk


We received a notice from the UK tax authority, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), indicating that you do not currently meet VAT requirements in the UK. Sellers on Amazon must comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

As a result, you may no longer sell on Amazon.co.uk and you are no longer allowed to use our Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service in connection with Amazon.co.uk.
Please ship any open orders and submit a request to remove any FBA inventory from our fulfillment centers in the UK (https://sellercentral-europe.amazon.com/gp/help/200280650). If you do not submit this request within the next 30 days, we may dispose of your inventory.

Additionally, you may no longer offer to ship items into the UK on any of Amazon’s European marketplaces. You may also no longer use our FBA service to ship items into the UK. Your shipping options have been restricted accordingly.

If you have funds in your Selling on Amazon payment account, they will be available after any amounts for A-to-z claims or charge-backs on your orders have been deducted. This usually takes about 90 days, but funds may be held longer by Amazon Payments Europe S.C.A.

Please contact HMRC at [email protected] to resolve your VAT status. Your HMRC Case Reference number is CFSS-2581541 and you should quote this reference number in all correspondence with HMRC. Once HMRC informs us that their notice has been withdrawn, we may allow you to sell on Amazon.co.uk again. Visit our help page for more information (https://sellercentral-europe.amazon.com/gp/help/202163000).

Ach wäre das schön, …

wenn wir in Deutschland aber auch nur ansatzweise so weit wären. Die UK Regelung hat noch Lücken, aber es ist ein Anfang. Ich bin gespannt ab wann wir hier in Deutschland oder in der EU mit einer annähernd konsequenten Verfahrensweise rechnen dürfen.
