Hi all 


Ebay seem to be making things difficult


A Belgian  seller tells me he has to pay 21% Belgian VAT on any think he sells


But then apparently Ebay will charge me 21 % VAT on top  making the VAT 42 %


Is Ebay running a scam after all this is for second hand items

I can't see any logical explanation that an EU country would charge their own VAT rate (21%) on exports outside the EU. I think the seller is wrong. Had the seller said he needed to register for VAT in England, then I do believe that to be so, but he would not charge 21% VAT.
