Amazon Business has been launched on the e-commerce giant's French platform, the latest stage of its global expansion.

By being hosted on amazon.fr, Amazon Business is now available in three European countries - the United Kingdom and Germany as well as France - and also the United States, Japan and India.

The service, which offers business users a number of incentives to purchase essentials from Amazon and its Marketplace, has accumulated 90,000 customers since its inception in April last year.

"The launch of Amazon Business on amazon.fr enables multi-national businesses with entities in Europe to continue to streamline their purchasing," said Bill Burkland, Head of Amazon Business, Amazon.co.uk.

Incentives on the platform include free one-day delivery plus search and filter features that allows customers to quickly find offers from Amazon and Marketplace who display net prices and make VAT-exclusive invoices automatically available for download on the customer's account.

Earlier this week, Amazon reached an agreement with the French government to pay €200mn in back taxes from earnings made between 2006 and 2010.
