Amazon is extending the scope of its European VAT Calculation Services Methodology policy to include Business-to-Business (B2B) product-specific VAT calculations for specific types of listings across its European stores. The existing B2B product-specific VAT calculations will now be expanded to cover certain sales in Spain and Sweden.

  1. Sale of electronic items subject to the product-related domestic reverse charge: a) In Spain, this includes cell phones, e-readers, laptop computers, tablet computers, or video game consoles. b) In Sweden, this includes cell phones, computer chips, e-readers, laptop computers, tablet computers, or video game consoles.

  3. Shipment value exceeds the applicable threshold: a) In Spain, the threshold is EUR 10,000. b) In Sweden, the threshold is SEK 100,000.

It’s important to note that your continued use of selling services after the effective date of June 13, 2023, constitutes your acceptance of these changes. This means that you need to familiarize yourself with the updated VAT policy and ensure compliance with the new requirements.

If you have any questions or need more information, it’s advisable to reach out to your tax advisor. They can guide you through the specifics of the policy changes and help you understand how they impact your business.

As an Amazon seller, staying informed about policy updates and changes is crucial for your success. By proactively adapting to these modifications, you can ensure smooth operations, maintain compliance, and continue providing excellent service to your customers.

So, take a moment to review the new European VAT Calculation Services Methodology policy, specifically the extended B2B product-specific VAT calculations in Spain and Sweden. Update your processes and systems accordingly, and don’t hesitate to seek professional advice if needed.

Aged FBA inventory will be getting automatically removed

Kika Angelic

Published

on

As third party sellers gear up for the approaching holiday season, Amazon has recently announced a crucial update that warrants the attention of all sellers utilizing its fulfillment centers. This announcement concerns the management of aging inventory and aims to optimize space within the centers to accommodate the surge in demand during the holiday period. In this article I will be addressing this change and explaining how it impacts your business.

Commencing September 15, 2023, Amazon is implementing a new policy pertaining to aging inventory. The core aspect of this policy involves the potential removal of aging inventory from Amazon’s fulfillment centers, unless sellers choose to opt out of this process.

In this context, aging inventory refers to units that have been stored within an Amazon fulfillment center for a duration exceeding 365 days. To mitigate the accumulation of aging stock and to make room for new incoming products, Amazon has decided to introduce an automated process for the removal of such inventory.

While the notion of automated inventory removal might raise questions, it’s imperative to acknowledge the potential advantages this policy could bring to your business:

  1. Aged Inventory Surcharge Reduction: Sellers are subject to charges for housing aging inventory for prolonged periods. Allowing for automated removal could potentially save sellers from incurring these surcharges, thereby leading to cost efficiency.
  2. Enhanced Inventory Performance Index (IPI) Score: By actively participating in the automated removal process for aging inventory, sellers have the opportunity to enhance their IPI score. This metric reflects the efficiency of your inventory management and can influence factors such as search result placement and overall visibility.

Under the new policy, you will have the following choices:

  1. Returning Aging Inventory: Should you wish to retain your aging inventory, the process entails providing a valid return address through the Automated Fulfillable Inventory settings. This way, Amazon will return your aging units to you, preventing their removal from the fulfillment centers.
  2. Recycling, Donation, or Removal: Failing to provide a valid return address prompts Amazon to take further steps, which might involve recycling, donating, or outright removal of the aging inventory to optimize storage space.
  3. Opting Out of Automated Removal: If you prefer to maintain full control over your inventory and prevent automated removal, the “Disabled” option within the settings allows you to opt out of this process.

It’s paramount to note that once automated removals are initiated, they cannot be reversed. This underscores the significance of making a well-informed decision in accordance with your business strategy.

For sellers currently possessing aging inventory and yet to modify their removal settings, Amazon will notify you through email and Seller Central regarding impending automatic removals. Staying vigilant and proactive will be key during this transitional period.

For adjusting your settings and making informed decisions, navigate to “Automated Fulfillable Inventory settings.” To monitor aging inventory status and overall health, access “Manage Inventory Health.”

Migration of Responsible Person dashboard on Amazon starts August 23

Published

Starting from August 23, 2023, Amazon is making a change that’s going to merge the Responsible Person dashboard with the Manage Your Compliance dashboard. I’m here to break it down and explain what this means for third party sellers.

During migration, your list of ASINs from the Responsible Person dashboard will be automatically added to the Manage Your Compliance dashboard, along with their compliance status: Completed, No longer requested, or Not submitted.

The Responsible Person dashboard will then be closed down, and any new Responsible Person submissions must be made on the Manage Your Compliance dashboard.

It is recommend that for all your ASINs that appear as “past due” on the Responsible Person dashboard, you add your Responsible Person information as soon as possible prior to the migration on 23. August.

Doing so will help to ensure the information is validated before the transition and automatically transferred to the Manage Your Compliance dashboard. You can also choose to do this for ASINs that appear with a due date of September 30, 2024, to ensure that you are compliant in advance.

As part of the migration, the Amazon Responsible Person service has been paused for new subscribers.

How to reactivate your removed EEE listings on Amazon.de

Kika Angelic

Published

If you’re an Amazon seller on Amazon.de, you might have recently come across an important announcement that could impact your listings. As of 1 July 2023, Amazon.de has deactivated all listings that are non-compliant with Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) requirements for waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). But don’t worry – we’re here to provide you with all the information you need to navigate these changes and reinstate your listings.

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a crucial aspect of waste management, designed to shift the responsibility of managing waste from electrical and electronic equipment back to the producers. If you’re a producer selling on Amazon.de, there are specific steps you need to take to ensure compliance:

  1. Registration and Collection System: If you’re a producer with a branch in Germany, you must register with stiftung ear for each brand and type of equipment combination you’re selling. Additionally, setting up a collection system for your WEEE is mandatory.
  2. Authorized Representative: For producers without a branch in Germany, appointing an authorized representative from stiftung ear’s list of admitted representatives is necessary.
  3. Compliance Solutions: Amazon offers solutions for producers to achieve compliance. You can choose from EPR Services on Amazon or the EPR Service provider network.
  4. Supplier Information: If you’re not a producer, you need to request WEEE-Reg.-Nrs. (WEEE registration numbers) from your upstream supplier for each brand and type of equipment combination you’re selling.

To reactivate your listings and prove your compliance with EPR requirements, follow these steps:

  1. Register Brands and WEEE-Reg.-Nrs.: Register your brands and submit your WEEE-Reg.-Nrs. for each brand and equipment combination on the Seller Central Compliance Portal. Ensure you do this only after the registration numbers are visible on the Stiftung ear portal.
  2. Non-Producer Declaration: If you’re not a producer, indicate this by checking the appropriate box when submitting the relevant WEEE-Reg.-Nrs. on the Compliance Portal.

Once you’ve completed the necessary compliance steps, you should be able to reactivate your electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) listings on Amazon.de. It’s important to make sure all your brand and type of equipment combinations are covered and registered.

If proving compliance poses challenges for your products, leading to listing deactivation, follow these steps:

  1. Contact Support: If you believe your products are exempt from these regulations, get in touch with Selling Partner Support.
  2. Further Information: For comprehensive information, refer to the EPR requirements: WEEE in Germany help page, the guide and video provided by Amazon, and Stiftung ear’s informative videos available in both German and English.

As an Amazon seller on Amazon.de, understanding and adhering to EPR requirements for waste from electrical and electronic equipment is paramount. Compliance not only ensures your listings remain active but also contributes to responsible waste management. By following the outlined steps and utilizing the provided resources, you’ll be well-equipped to navigate these changes and continue your successful journey as an Amazon seller.
