It is my understanding that I need to register for VAT to sell from Amazon UK. I am a USA based trader. Which is fine I understand.
But what I don't understand am I registering for VAT or registering for VAT to pay import duty on my products as they are imported into Amazon's Warehouse?
Or are the two systems completely different and separate?
Or is it just the case that Amazon will charge the 'import duty' and then bill me, in which case surely it is just a cost to me, and I could call is 'Pink banana charge' even though it is import duty it is just another cost to me?
Very confused, or maybe just over thinking all this.
