The issue in GetHuman-motkina_'s own words
I need help! I received a letter, Eby requires a German VAT certificate from me !! March *, they want to block my account (ID: Den-nik) if I do not send my German VAT certificate number !!!*Here is the letter I received:*In ** days your eBay account will be suspended if you don’t act now***Avoid the suspension of your eBay account by uploading your German VAT certificate*From March *, a VAT certificate is required to keep trading on eBay***Hi den-nik (*****@***.com),**We recently reached out to you regarding an important change in German tax law. To ensure that you can keep selling to or from Germany, you need to provide us with a certificate (“Bescheinigung nach ***f UStG”) confirming the tax registration of your business in Germany.**Important: You only have until * March **** to provide us with your German VAT certificate. **If we do not receive your certificate on time, we are going to suspend your eBay account in March ****. Therefore, we highly recommend you contact your tax consultant to discuss next steps. Please visit the eBay Seller Centre for additional resources and information. You can find the eBay Seller Centre by following this link:*https:**verkaeuferportal.ebay.de*umsatzsteuer**Tax evasion is a criminal offence. eBay continues to work with German authorities to prevent it and will take action against those who don’t comply with the law.
