Nowadays, our Amazon sellers customers told us that they received Amazon’s email about Brexit. This will influence the inventory in Pan-Eroupe,especially the hot selling items on Amazon. In this post,we will help sellers to grasp the main point of this email. Consequently,more Amazon sellers can do the FBA plan in advance.
First, UK will leave the Europe from 29th March 2019.
No matter if there is protocol for the Brexit, the FBA service in UK will be as usual. That is, whatever the outcome, the inventory to UK FBA will have no effect on the UK sales.
Second, what outcomes will the Brexit will bring to us?
1. UK will cut off the trade protocol with the left Europe countries temporarily.
As a result, Amazon can’t allcoate the inventory in UK FBA to other Europe countries. And your products won’t be able to sell via Pan-EU. This will influece the sales in Germany,France, Italy and Spain, and there will be out of inventory situations.
2.Therefore, Amazon suggest sellers can send inventory to one country among UK,Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
That will ensure your Pan-Eu selling plan will be as usual. That means, you need to send inventory to UK separately,then you can choose one country from Germany,France, Italy and spain to implement the Pan-EU plan.
At the same time, other countries in Europe also can’t alocate inventories to UK. So from the tax perspective, sellers should register the VAT where you send the inventory to. This is very
3.Amazon suggest that, in this special period, the inventory to UK or other Europe countries should be available for 4 weeks, not too many or less.
We also noticed that the UK goverment also says above situtation has slight possibility, because they used the word “temporary“. Even if the Brexit come without protocol, they will find a way for the sellers to implement the Pan-EU plan.
