This article is a summary of the transactions that A2X will create when using VAT grouping or VAT jurisdiction tracking. We'll cover the different transactions and explain what they mean.
NoTax - A2X has not detected any Tax applied on this transaction by Amazon. This can only be detected if Amazon is calculating VAT for your business (using VAT calculation service)
Export - A2X has detected that the sale has been exported from the EU based on Amazon’s VAT data (requires VAT jurisdiction tracking)
B2B - A2X has detected that the sale was made to a VAT registered business buyer (requires VAT jurisdiction tracking)
MissingTax - A2X does not have enough information to determine if tax was applied (transactions marked as missing tax should be checked)
Grouping - jurisdiction or shipped to, depending on whether the transactions are using shipping information or jurisdiction data
Registered Country - A country code such as GB, DE, IT
Non-Registered EU Country - sales for an EU country that is not one of the countries you have specified as VAT registered
Non-EU Country - sales for a non-EU country
Unknown Country - sales where the country cannot be determined - this will likely update once the information becomes available
No Jurisdiction - transactions where Amazon’s data did not specify a VAT jurisdiction, this could be because it was not known, or because VAT calculation service was not being used
Examples of the A2X VAT transactions
Here are several examples of these transactions being used in settlements.
A typical A2X transaction where VAT jurisdiction tracking is being used will have several parts:
Principal - Amazon.co.uk jurisdiction GB (Order ItemPrice)
In this example it is a Principal amount (what Amazon calls a sale), made through Amazon.co.uk, taxable in the GB (United Kingdom) jurisdiction.
Principal - Amazon.co.uk jurisdiction DE (Order ItemPrice)
In this example it is a Principal amount (what Amazon calls a sale), made through Amazon.co.uk, taxable in the DE (German) jurisdiction.
Principal - Amazon.co.uk jurisdiction GB NoTax Export (Order ItemPrice)
Similar to the above example, except this order was exported outside the EU, so no VAT was charged. Amazon recorded the tax jurisdiction as GB (United Kingdom).
Principal - Amazon.it shipped to IT NoTax (Order ItemPrice)
Similar to the above example except a sale on Amazon.it, this order had no tax applied and should be zero-rated. Amazon recorded the tax jurisdiction as IT (Italy).
When VAT jurisdiction tracking is not being used, the VAT grouping will change to 'shipped to', as in these examples:
Principal - Amazon.co.uk shipped to GB (Order ItemPrice)
In this example there is a sale made on Amazon.co.uk, shipped to GB (United Kingdom).
Principal - Amazon.co.uk shipped to GB NoTax (Order ItemPrice)
In this example there is a sale made on Amazon.co.uk, shipped to GB (United Kingdom) and no VAT was charged - this would indicate the order was zero-rated.
Principal - Amazon.co.uk shipped to Non-EU Country NoTax (Order ItemPrice)
In this example there is a sale made on Amazon.co.uk, shipped to a country outside the EU (United Kingdom) so no VAT has been charged by Amazon.
