When does the obligation of VAT registration in another EU country arise?

1. Commodity storage in different European Union countries

The obligation to register as a VAT payer in other European Union country arises during selling commodity on Amazon in the FBA model when the goods are stored in a foreign Amazon storage. Registration should be made before selling goods from a given foreign storage (regardless of the value of goods sold).

2. Exceeding the limit of mail-order sales

When conducting foreign sales of goods, you should monitor the value of sales of goods shipped to individual European Union countries. The obligation to register for VAT taxation arises when the value of sales to a given EU country exceeds the limit specified in the regulations of that country. This is the so-called mail-order limit. Monitoring it has a significant impact on determining the correct way of taxing VAT on foreign e-commerce sales.

3. Voluntary VAT registration

Regardless of the value of sales of goods sent to other European Union countries, there is the possibility of voluntary registration for VAT purposes in those EU countries where your goods are sold. Choosing a VAT registration in other countries eliminates the no need to monitor mail order limits.
