How to handle negative VAT balance in Amazon Seller Central

    For example, if we have VAT filing IN UK, we have negative amount £-2,1597.91, just for our example.

    The process is as follows:

    1. If the VAT liability is shown as a negative number (i.e. € -100) in Seller Central, you are in a repayment position. It means that your input VAT is greater than your output VAT in any given VAT return.
    2. Some countries allow you to use the repayment amount as a credit against your future VAT payment amounts, while other countries will issue a refund of the repayment amount to your bank account (not Amazon account)
    3. For UK you will receive a letter from HMRC informing how the amount will be paid. Usually the payment is done by check, but it could be also done to your bank account. This information can be only confirmed by HMRC , and you can find it in the letter they will provide you. However if you want to know more details about this, we suggest you directly contact HMRC for further information:
