Amazon UK

Amazon has announced that UK sellers will now face a charge due to the implementation of a Digital Services Tax by the UK government. The global retailer has decided to put this 2% fee rise on the sellers and it will be introduced on September 1, 2020. However, Amazon has decided that they will not backdate the fee to the start of the tax year, even though it officially applies to all revenue earned after April 1.

Amazon announced this week that, due to the long-awaited finalisation of Brexit, the FBA operations in the UK will be separated from Europe come 1 January 2021. This means that UK sellers who had previously been making the most of European Fulfillment Network or Pan-European FBA benefits will no longer be able to do so.
