Amazon VAT Calculation Service vs Taxology - comparison

What is the Amazon VAT Calculation Service?

To meet customer expectations, Amazon has introduced a range of VAT support services called Amazon VAT Calculation Services. However, these services have certain limits. Indeed, Amazon will register you as a VAT payer and file a VAT return for you, but only under the condition that your goods are shipped to recipients in certain EU countries.

What does this mean? Amazon’s service is not comprehensive. Entrepreneurs who have customers based in e.g. Austria and the Netherlands. If you chose the Amazon VAT Calculation Service and you sell goods to these countries, you will have to handle the VAT settlement on your own. This is an additional burden for you.

The restriction of the Amazon VAT Calculation Service to only selected countries is not the only setback you may encounter. Building brand awareness can also be problematic. When using Amazon’s services, you are doomed to one invoice template and you cannot even place your own logo on it.
