Amazon FBA changes: What you need to know & International Opportunity Webinar

Start Date:
Thursday 27th August 2020 - 11:00 am
End Date:
Thursday 27th August 2020 - 12:00 pm

Join the Department for International Trade and Tamebay in this webinar to discover more about Amazon FBA changes and the International opportunity available from cross border selling.

From the 1st of January 2021, Amazon will break the link for FBA between the UK and EU countries, and the UK will be free to establish it’s on Trade Agreements around the world. This will have a significant impact on your business – your strategy for selling on Amazon into Europe will change and it’s likely there will be new Customs and Tariffs for shipping goods into Europe, both in bulk consignments to fulfilment centres and for individual sales to consumers.

There is also the opportunity to target other regions around the world and in this webinar we’ll take a look at marketplaces in North America, New Zealand and Australia where you can grow your business on platforms other than Amazon and DIT can assist you to get started.


In this webinar you will discover

Amazon FBA changes – January 2021

  • FBA users using EFN will no longer be fulfilled across the UK-EU border
  • What the changes mean for sellers:
    • Moving inventory
    • VAT registration in EU5
  • Reminder that EU sellers will have to do the same if they want to continue selling in UK – A potential positive for the domestic market

Other opportunities to consider

  • As mentioned above, the domestic market might become less saturated on Amazon
  • Other regions to consider which are relatively easy as they are English speaking and do not require a lot of translation work:
    • North America
    • New Zealand
    • Australia
