      No, Amazon does not automatically pay Value Added Tax (VAT) on behalf of its sellers. VAT is a tax imposed by governments on the sale of goods and services within their jurisdiction. The responsibility for paying VAT typically falls on the seller, and they must register for and collect VAT on their sales if they meet the relevant threshold requirements set by the government. In the European Union, for example, sellers are required to register for VAT if they sell goods or services to customers located in the EU and their annual sales exceed a certain threshold.

      No, Amazon does not automatically pay VAT. The responsibility for collecting and paying VAT on sales made through Amazon typically lies with the seller of the product. However, in some cases, Amazon may act as the seller of record and collect VAT on behalf of the seller. In these cases, Amazon is responsible for paying the VAT to the relevant tax authorities.
