There are the following cases with Amazon Dealers handled at WW+KN:

  • Distance Selling / Threshold Cases: The Amazon Dealer sells its goods from another EU country to German private customers and has a turnover over the threshold of EUR 100,000.00 in a calendar year. After reaching the threshold, a German VAT registration for the Amazon Dealer is required.
  • Amazon FBA Package / Fulfillment Service: The Amazon Dealer uses the German FBA Package or Fulfillment Service of Amazon. The goods are located at Amazon´s warehouse in Germany and sent the customers directly from the German warehouse. Then the deliveries into the warehouse from another EU country or a country from outside the EU are intra-community purchases or imports. The sales from the warehouse to the customers are subject to the German VAT. The Amazon Dealer will need a German VAT registration.
  • German Warehouse: The Amazon Dealer has an own warehouse in Germany. The deliveries into the warehouse from another EU country or a country from outside the EU are intra-community purchases or imports. The sales from the warehouse to the customers are subject to the German VAT. The Amazon Dealer will need a German VAT registration.
