Generate and Send Your EU VAT Invoices!

If you sell on Amazon EU marketplaces, you’ve probably already faced a situation where the buyers ask you to send them a VAT invoice. For example, in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, buyers often request invoices, even for inexpensive items. This also applies to cases where the purchase was made on business expense and a buyer needs an invoice in order to claim the VAT return from the government.

How to generate an invoice from Amazon

The first logical thought that comes to everyone's head is that Amazon has already taken care of this. But, unfortunately, it is not. In matters of invoices and taxes, it’s every man for himself. Amazon does not issue VAT invoices and all responsibility for compliance with all legal requirements for issuing VAT invoices ultimately falls on the sellers.

At first glance, it seems plain and simple. You can create an Amazon FBA invoice template, type in customer’s details and calculate the VAT rate manually. But imagine that you need to do this for dozens, hundreds or even thousands of orders per month! And do not forget that different EU countries have different VAT rates! Sounds scary, isn’t it? But don’t despair, we got your back. Meet the EU VAT Invoice Generator which has been made to simplify your Amazon Europe invoicing. And like all the features in Sagemailer, it's extremely easy to use.

Say goodbye to manual Amazon invoicing! Now all you have to do is fill in a couple of fields, once and for all!
