There are several solutions to this situation: First: you may get French VAT registration. France is the only country in the EU that supports deferred VAT – you don’t need to pay at import. And when you buy from an Italian supplier they will invoice you without VAT (reverse charge). Second: You use an EU company (or Branch of a US company registered in the EU). Then Amazon or other marketplaces will not remit VAT. And you will be able to pay VAT for the difference in your VAT return. Third: use other marketplaces. Zalando, Cdiscount, and several other marketplaces don’t remit VAT from non-EU suppliers.
