Reminder: German VAT

The latest changes to German valued added tax (VAT) law require marketplaces to take additional measures to verify that sellers are compliant with the local law. Sellers based in Ireland will have until 1 October 2019 to upload their German VAT certificate.

eBay has always worked with German authorities to prevent tax evasion. We will continue to take action against those who don’t comply with the law. This includes, but is not limited to, listing removal and account suspension.
