While sending your units to the Amazon fulfilment centre, please make sure that the points listed for tax compliance and FBA dispatch norms are correctly mentioned in your stock transfer documents. This ensures the movement of goods from your warehouse/Principal Place of Business (PPOB) to your Additional Place of Business (APOB) i.e. Amazon fulfilment centre, which is recognised as your branch location. We also recommend that you take your own independent legal and tax advice and comply with all applicable laws while mentioning the following points for tax compliance and compliance with the FBA dispatch norms:
