How EU Prices Affect List Price Requirements

Minimum and maximum list prices for the 35% and 70% royalty plans will now also account for VAT. For books published before January 1, 2015 that would fall outside these new limits after VAT is included, we will adjust the list price to ensure the book remains in the same royalty plan that was previously selected. You can always change your list price or suggested royalty plan at any time. Learn more about digital list price requirements.

To see whether your list prices will meet the requirements (both with and without VAT), check these tables:

*Due to legislation specific to Italy, a lower VAT rate of 4% will apply to eBooks with ISBNs purchased on the amazon.it Kindle store by customers in Italy. A higher VAT rate of 22% will apply to eBooks without ISBNs. Kindle Digital Publishing (KDP) doesn't require ISBNs for eBooks, but having an ISBN will ensure a lower VAT rate for sales of your eBook to customers in Italy.

Note: Do not use an ISBN from a print edition for your digital edition. If you want to include an ISBN for the digital version of your book, it must be a unique ISBN. You can purchase an ISBN from multiple sources on the Web, including the official ISBN body.
