VAT made easy

Find out how your fulfilment method affects VAT requirements

Depending on the nature of your business, you will be required to register for VAT in a European country as per the regulations. Factors that influence your VAT obligations include the fulfilment method and the country of inventory storage.

FBA inventory management

Use the tools in your selling partner account to list products, create shipping plans, send products, track and monitor your shipments and routing, and remove inventory from Amazon fulfilment centres.

Inventory sales dashboard

Your inventory sales dashboard displays your Inventory Performance Index (IPI) score, along with key influencing factors. Be sure to check your IPI score regularly as a low score could lead to overrun fees on your inventory and limit your ability to send more inventory.

Manage excess inventory

Optimise your inventory levels by knowing when to mark down or remove your products. Monitor detailed information about storage fees, opportunities to drive sales, and suggestions to help improve returns on your inventory.

Track inventory circulation

Improve sell-through rates and avoid long-term storage fees. Use inventory circulation tools to understand how much inventory you’re holding and how long it’s been in fulfilment centres.

Sort out inventory without active listings

Keep your listings active by including necessary pricing and condition information and resolving errors. If your inventory is in fulfilment centres without an associated active listing, it’s not available for purchase.

Replenish inventory

Keep your best-selling inventory in stock with personalised replenishment recommendations. You can also make adjustments for future promotions and seasonal demand patterns. Track your inventory and supplier orders so that you’re prepared to meet product demand.
