Vat added to auctions
Beware of any auction where the seller is adding vat at the end of their auction, always check that the seller is vat registered, you can do this by contacting the seller and asking them if they are actually VAT registered and if so what is their VAT no and do their reciepts have their VAT no on it, if not can they supply you with one.
If once you have aquired the Vat no you are happy then continue with your sale if not then contact your local VAToffice and make further inquiries.
It is illegal and fraudulent to charge VAT on any product unless you are a VAT registered company/person.
If the seller does not respond to your questions then its almost 99.99% certain that the seller is fraudulentley obtaining VAT to line his own pocket and make more money out of you .
