You must provide a valid VAT number registered for your business in that country, and upload it to Seller Central within 30 days. If you do not complete this step, you may not be allowed to sell on that website.
To request an extended deadline, you must inform us your VAT number application is in progress and confirm that you will be clearing all retrospective payments to the relevant tax authority. Once you make these acknowledgments, you will be given additional 60 days to provide the VAT number.
Please refer to the email sent from us that requires you to provide a valid VAT number.
Please visit the VAT/GST Registration Numbers page, and enter your available VAT numbers by country.
In general, a VAT number is valid only when the business name registered for the VAT number matches your legal name in Seller Central.
We can only accept a VAT number issued by the applicable tax authority.
We cannot accept VAT numbers that don't match your legal name. You must contact the relevant tax authority to either update your business name for the VAT number registered or request them to provide a new VAT number belonging to the legal name in your seller account.
You may also choose to change your business name in Seller Central, but this may (re)trigger the account verification process, and you will have to provide relevant proof to clear this verification.
