Do I need VAT registration to sell on Amazon?

Posted on 27 July 2021

In most countries which impose VAT on the Import and Sale of goods (eg. Europe, the UK, Canada, Singapore, etc.), it will be necessary to register for VAT. Amazon often requires this in addition to government legislation. Having a VAT registration lands up making your import more tax-efficient, as you will be able to reclaim the Import VAT payment you make once you prepare your subsequent VAT filing in that country.
