If you are an Amazon seller in India, you need to comply with the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime. This means you need to file monthly returns and pay taxes on your online sales. But how do you get the data and documents you need for GST filing? One of the most important documents you need is the Merchant Tax Report (MTR) from Amazon. In this article, we will explain what MTR is, why you need it, how to download it from Amazon Seller Central, how to use it for GST filing, and some tips and best practices for MTR.


What is Merchant Tax Report and Why You Need It




MTR is a monthly report that Amazon generates for its sellers based on their transactions in Amazon's store. It contains information such as order ID, invoice number, invoice date, product name, product price, GST rate, GST amount, shipping charges, commission fees, and other details. MTR helps you calculate your taxable turnover, tax liability, input tax credit, and net GST payable or refundable.

You need to download and file MTR for GST compliance because it is the source of truth for your online sales. It helps you avoid mismatched invoices, under-reporting or over-reporting of sales, incorrect tax calculation, and penalties or notices from the tax authorities. MTR also helps you claim input tax credit on the GST paid on your purchases from Amazon or other suppliers.


How to Download Merchant Tax Report from Amazon Seller Central




To download MTR from Amazon Seller Central, follow these steps:


  • Log in to your Amazon Seller Central account.



  • Click on Reports and then click on Tax Document Library.



  • Under Select Report Type field, select Merchant Tax Report (MTR).



  • Under Include Transaction field, select B2B or B2C depending on whether you want to download the report for business-to-business or business-to-consumer transactions.

How to Use Merchant Tax Report for GST Filing




To use MTR for GST filing, you need to use different reports for different returns. Here is how:


  • To file GSTR-1, which is the monthly return for outward supplies, you need to use the B2B report. This report contains the invoice-level details of your sales to registered customers. You need to upload this report in the GSTR-1 portal or use a software tool that can convert it into JSON format.



  • To file GSTR-3B, which is the monthly summary return for payment of taxes, you need to use the B2C report. This report contains the summary-level details of your sales to unregistered customers. You need to enter this data in the GSTR-3B portal or use a software tool that can calculate the tax amounts from the report.



You can also use the MTR to file other returns such as GSTR-2A, GSTR-4, and GSTR-9 depending on your business type and turnover. For more details, you can refer to the GST portal or consult a tax professional.
