Partner Letter: Brexit

Subject line: Amazon Brexit – Sellers be prepared!

Dear {customer},

Amazon lately announced some big changes for FBA sellers using EFN or Pan-EU in the United Kingdom. To make the transition as smooth as possible for you, we have partnered up with hellotax, an experienced tax consultant for e-commerce to get more info on the topic.

There are two main situations in which you might be and that would require immediate action from your side:

  1. You’re a FBA seller storing only in the UK:
  • The problem: From 1 January 2021, goods of EFN sellers storing in the UK will only be used for national order and no longer to fulfil orders from other EU marketplaces. This means a decrease of 446 million to 66 million potential customers.
  • The solution: To be able to continue selling in EU countries, you’ll need to store in at least one of the EU countries – that would mean, to first of all register for VAT in that country, be it France, Italy, Spain, or Germany.
  1. You’re a FBA seller not storing in the UK:
  • The problem: From 1 January 2021, sellers not storing in the UK will not be able to get their orders fulfilled in the kingdom. This means losing as much as 66 million potential customers.
  • The solution: To be able to continue selling in the UK countries, you’ll need to store there – that would mean, to first of all register for VAT in the UK.

In any of these situations, hellotax provides all the services you might need, from VAT registrations to VAT returns, through convenient subscriptions starting at €99/month.

In addition to the great standard pricing hellotax offers, we have negotiated for you a 10% discount on your first year, if you apply coupon {partner coupon} at check-out while purchasing your VAT subscription(s).
