VAT-exclusive and -inclusive pricing

Product detail pages may show the price exclusive and inclusive of VAT, depending on who sells the item.

The product detail pages of items sold by Amazon and some third-party sellers include:

  • the price exclusive of VAT
  • the price inclusive of VAT
  • text that reads: Downloadable VAT invoice underneath either the delivery estimate or the Add to Basket button.

At the time of placing the order, the VAT-exclusive price and the applicable VAT are estimates. We calculate the final price and VAT rate when we dispatch your order. We base the calculation on your deliver-to location, the deliver-from location and whether you have a VAT registration number that Amazon has verified. You will see the final price, including any applicable VAT (which may be zero-rated), in your delivery confirmation and on your invoice. Please note that in some circumstances, you will pay an import fees deposit.

If the product detail page shows only the price inclusive of VAT, it could be because:

  • The seller has not provided Amazon with a valid VAT number for the country (EU or UK) from which the item will dispatch.
  • The seller does not proactively provide a downloadable VAT invoice. In this case, you must contact them directly to get an invoice.

In either case, Amazon will charge you the price inclusive of VAT.

Note: Some sellers have self-declared that they are VAT-exempt and have no obligation to generate VAT invoices. The product detail pages for their items will show only one price and text that reads Downloadable receipt beneath the Add to Basket button.

Note: Amazon cannot assess your eligibility to reclaim VAT. If you’re unsure whether you can reclaim VAT, please ask your tax adviser.
