Do I pay taxes if I paid amazon fees?
28 Oct 2017
Hi,

I have recently opened a shop on amazon and I am looking for clarification regarding the tax laws. Do I still need to pay taxes to the HMRC if I have already paid Amazon Fees?

Kind regards,

If you are selling as a business on Amazon then all sales are subject to HMRC taxation.

The law is basically, if you are selling your own personal goods then you are not a business. If you buy something with the intention to sell on, then you are a business.

Amazon fees are basically your way of paying Amazon to do business through their website.
