Avalara to End Amazon VAT Services from Nov 1st, 2024
VAT Ai Team

In a move that has sent shockwaves through the Amazon Seller community, Avalara, a major tax compliance partner for Amazon, will cease providing VAT reporting services for Amazon's Pan-European (PAN-EU) and Central & Eastern European (CEE) seller programs effective from November 1st, 2024.

The decision, confirmed on Amazon's Seller Central forums and by other industry sources, leaves thousands of Amazon sellers to find alternative VAT compliance solutions to maintain business operations across the EU.

Avalara has been automatically filing VAT returns on behalf of many Amazon sellers across multiple European countries. With this exit, affected sellers must now rapidly transition to new providers or take on VAT registrations, calculations, reporting, and payments themselves - a complicated process given the nuances of each EU member state's VAT rules.

Amazon sellers have been abuzz with concerns over the short transition timeline and lack of clarity on the next steps. Many are worried about the administrative burden of appointing new fiscal representatives, recertifying tax registrations, and validating VAT settings to remain compliant.

What now? Switching to a qualified, experienced tax service provider will be critical for affected Amazon sellers to maintain compliance. VAT Ai is your trusted partner for all-in-one tax compliance solutions.
