If you file for the United Kingdom, Spain, or Italy via VAT Services on Amazon, your VAT return filing periodicity is likely to be quarterly. This means that you will not see a draft VAT return each month, and only for the last month of the quarter will a VAT return be generated by your tax agent for your review. In Spain and Italy, the VAT return quarter will always follow the calendar quarters (that is, ending in March, June, September and December). For the United Kingdom, your VAT return quarter may end on any month, and this is determined by the tax authorities at the time when your VAT registration number is issued.
In Italy, submission of quarterly VAT filing is only required if you have at least one transaction to report. In consequence, if there are no transactions to report, your tax agent may not file the quarterly VAT filing and the Filing Status in Seller Central will be ‘Not submitted’.
Please note: for Italy, the VAT return is required to be submitted quarterly. However, payments can be made either quarterly or monthly. Even if the VAT return is not due, please ensure that you have made any required payments. If you have a VAT payment due, you will be notified of this on the View Filings page in Seller Central.
