I'm sure some of you will have seen this PDF guide that has been shared on a few of the Amazon groups. But for those of you who haven't, I'll add it below.
The gist of it is, if you are a registered business. Limited business or sole trader (although I have heard sole trader may be slightly trickier) and you are NOT VAT registered (Yearly turnover is less than £85k), then you can apply to not be charged VAT on Amazon FBA and Referral fees. Or get a refund for the time before you became VAT registered.
Warning - Only try and do this if your account is in good health, as in you have all the correct names and details and your paperwork matches this exactly. You don't want Amazon looking into your account and finding something they're not happy with while they're doing their checks. If you are unsure you should ask your Accountant.
I received my refund in August 2021 and no longer pay VAT on fees going forward, it took me about 6 weeks from applying to get my refund.
Thanks to the Amazon Sellers who wrote the guide and shared it in the Amazon selling community. 💚
