Go to settings and click on VAT numbers:

Here, in the VAT numbers menu you have the overview on your actual VAT numbers:

1. Country 

This is the country where you already have a VAT number, or, you are in the process of registering one. Countries will also show up if the software detected storage, or, if it detected the exceeding of the distance selling threshold for that country. These calculations are made by the software automatically based on your Amazon data. The software will inform you via email if you either stored or exceeded the threshold limit in a country where you do not have a VAT number yet. The e-mail will be sent to the address you stored in your software account.

2. Calculation date detected 

This field detects the first day of goods stored, and/or the first day you exceed the threshold limit. Whatever triggers the need to get VAT registered in that given country, it is automatically filled out by the software. The calculation date detected is actually the day when you first stored goods in a country or when you exceeded the threshold limit.

3. Calculation from date 

This field is filled out by you based on your wishes on where to pay taxes.

The calculation date detected can be used as a reference point. If you wish to add a future date or a past date here it is totally possible, although we advise you to use the calculation date detected as calculation date detected to be legally compliant. This date is the date from when all the reports will be made and VAT returns filed. You can also delete this date if you want.

4. Add country 

Here you can add a new country. In order to add a new country, you must fill out the below details.
