UK trademark in Spain

I have a trademark for my U.K. product. A Spanish-based friend sells the product for me on Amazon Spain. Can they submit my trademark in order to get brand registry? Will they need a contract between me (the owner of the trademark) and them showing that they have sole right to sell on Amazon Spain?

Answer: if I understood you correctly, either you or your Spainish colleague will have the trademark certificate in their name. If its your company it would make sense for you to attain the trademark in your name and then arrange an agreement with the Spanish seller in case Amazon asks. I’ve seen requests for contracts requested been trademark owners and distributors.

Someone has relisted the product which I have created 2022

This is a bit random but caught me off guard and kinda need some help. So I created a product myself and I sell them on Amazon. I’ve just checked eBay and someone has relisted the product which I have created myself and I sell on Amazon, at a higher priceWhat should I do? Shall I contact the seller and tell him to take it down?

Answer: You should not stress, and if it is more expensive unless you have bad feedback it will not affect you

We had the same with a PL product that we only sell on Amazon and then direct from ourselves. We looked in the seller and they had nearly 6k products. They would’ve had to buy the product directly from us and then try to sell it for more then we were.As long as they’re buying my products at full price they can do what they want with it.

Shipping company in china has had to pay the duty and VAT

Our factory (who we trust) have said that the shipping company in china has had to pay the duty and VAT in order for our goods to be released. They have asked the factory to reimburse them, and the factory have obviously asked us. We have registered for tax and have an EORI number and assumed the bill would come directly to us. Just wondered if anybody has had this happen. Incidentally we received the goods, without being asked by UK to pay any fees. We are worried about paying if twice, once to the shipping company in china and once here .

Answer:

n theory, someone does have to pay it for you and you reimburse them.What inco terms did you agree with the factory? This is the most important factor here….If DDP then you’ve already paid it within the cost of your goods (inflated price to cover it).If FOB or DDU/DAP for example, you would have to pay the vat and duty which is the best/safest way to work. However you would pay it directly to your forwarder of choice who pays it on your behalf.The best thing to do here is ask for a copy of the C88 and E2 which are documents showing how your goods have been declared to HMRC.This should, if correctly done, show your business name as importer, the supplier as the supplier, your EORI/VAT number and the correct value for the goods which finally shows the vat/duty payable.
