The German Government is temporarily reducing value added tax (VAT) from July 1st until December 31st this year. The German tax rates will change from 19% to 16% (regular VAT rate) and from 7% to 5% (reduced VAT rate). It is the aim of the German Government that retailers pass on the reduction to customers through lowered prices.
While this is not a required action for your published apps on the Amazon Appstore, you may choose to update the List Price of your apps and in-app purchasable items sold in Germany for the duration of the VAT reduction.
Before you apply any changes to the List Price for your apps and in-app purchasable items sold in Germany, please take note of the following:
If you would like to lower the list price for your apps, you can follow the steps below on the Amazon Developer Console:
If you have any additional questions, please contact Amazon Appstore Developer Support.
