VAT is charged on orders sold by Amazon within the European Union (EU).
In accordance with the laws governing members of the EU, Amazon is obliged to charge VAT on all orders delivered to destinations in member countries of the EU. VAT is charged in accordance with the local legislation in each member state.
The Recommended Retail Price (RRP) and/or price displayed for goods sold by Amazon are inclusive of UK VAT. However, your final price may differ depending on the actual VAT rate that applies to your order. For orders to other EU countries, the UK VAT amount will be deducted from the price and the applicable VAT rate for the destination country will be added. Your final price during checkout will reflect the correct VAT rate for the destination country of your order.
See How to purchase as a VAT registered customer within the EU if you want to use your VAT registration number when purchasing from Amazon.
See About VAT on Digital Products and Services sold by Amazon for more information on VAT on digital products and services.
