Austrian Tax Obligation  

All sellers must provide an Austrian VAT Registration Number if you are required to be VAT registered in Austria.

Under the Tax Amendment Law 2020, Amazon has an obligation to share identity and transactional data on sellers making sales to Austrian customers with the Austrian Tax Authority. This identity data includes the sellers VAT registration number in Austria. Amazon may suspend selling privileges to customers in Austria if this is not provided.

What to do if you are required to be VAT registered in Austria?

Provide your Austrian VAT Registration Number on Seller Central here, by December 31, 2020.

The following non-exhaustive list of transactions are subject to Austria VAT and trigger a VAT registration obligation in Austria:

  • You are established in Austria and make taxable supplies in excess of €30k per year
  • You are established outside of Austria and store goods in Austria for sale to customers
  • You make distance sales of goods to customers in Austria, delivered from another EU country, and the value of these sales exceed €35k in the current or prior year.

How to review your supplies to Austrian customers on Amazon?

You can download Amazon VAT Transactions Report on Seller Central which includes information on all of your supplies. Please navigate through: Reports > Fulfillment by Amazon > Amazon VAT transactions report .

What to do if you are not required to be VAT registered in Austria?

If you are not required to be VAT registered in Austria, please ensure that you have uploaded any available VAT registration number held in another EU Member State on Seller Central here. For example, if you have a German VAT number, please upload this to Seller Central if it has not already been uploaded.
