If you have any Inbound transactions on your Amazon VAT Transactions report (see column E in the AvaTemplate), Avalara requires additional information in order to process them correctly. Inbound transactions can be due to a variety of reasons:
- Stock movements from your warehouse to an Amazon logistic centre: Please let Avalara know about these transactions. Pro-forma invoices should be created for these movements and kept for your own records as an audit trail, these do not need to be provided to Avalara.
- Purchase of goods from an EU supplier: Please provide supplier invoices and enter these into the AvaTemplate – see additional Transactions Sections.
- Imports from outside the EU: If these are shipped directly to an Amazon warehouse outside your home country, please provide supplier invoices and enter these into the AvaTemplate.
- Goods shipped into your home country: Avalara does not need to be informed about these transactions as Avalara does not prepare your resident VAT filings.
