A: Amazon does not issue VAT invoices on behalf of sellers. It is your sole responsibility to fulfil all legal and VAT requirements relative to issuing VAT invoices to customers for sales transactions. If you are unsure of your VAT obligations, we strongly recommend that you verify the implications of these obligations these with your local tax office or contact your tax advisor. If you are not able to issue VAT invoices, please indicate this on the relevant pages of your Seller Profile in your Amazon Seller Account. Please contact buyers to resolve any issues directly with them for orders which are already complete and for which you are not able to issue a VAT invoice. This could be, for example, a partial refund or the return of the product. In the event of buyers contacting the Amazon Customer Service team with VAT invoice requests, we advise them to contact sellers directly. If this fails, we inform them that they can return the products and refund them, debiting your Amazon Seller Account accordingly.

Remember: You are solely responsible for the calculation, invoicing, reporting and payment of all duties, taxes, surveys or other deductions as well as any necessary Intrastat declarations.
