Selling on Amazon means selling on one of the world’s most established and well-known e-commerce platforms. There’s two ways to do it. The first is most similar to selling on other platforms. Your products are displayed on the Amazon website. Whenever a product is sold, you are responsible for shipping, billing and everything else related to the order. This method is called Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM). The second way to sell via Amazon has Amazon performing the fulfilment of your orders. Your products are stored in an Amazon Fulfillment Center from where Amazon ships it to your customers. Customer service and returns are among the services provided by Amazon in this case. This method is called Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA).
Regardless of whether you choose for FBM or FBA, there are a few things you always need to take care of before you can sell your products via Amazon. First of all, you need to create an Amazon seller account. Next, you can shine a spotlight on your product using marketing and attractive product listings. Once you’ve started selling, you will like be spending a lot of time on administration and tax filings. That’s where we can help.
The tax declarations for FBA sellers are especially complicated. You are obligated to pay revenue taxes in each country that has your product on inventory. Even the new rules around FBA sellers (MOSS, effective July 1st 2021) won’t change this fact. In fact, it’s likely to become even more complicated when the MOSS legislation comes into effect. Are you interested in finding out what will change for you? Fill in the questionnaire on this page (no strings attached) and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
