Where there is a concurrent event such as the RSGB contest that starts before the UKuG contest, serial numbers do not have to start at 001.

Re: Ebay seem to be making things difficult

No unless Belgium has different laws to the rest of the EU, exports should be VAT free. The VAT is paid on incomming goods. I believe this may change in a couple of months time for the EU. Ebay should be charging 20% i.e British VAT, which it forwards to HMRC. Ebay collects VAT on all UK bound goods that pass through its platform. It is registered with HMRC. I dont know how incoming goods is marked by the seller to indcate that because I have avoided Ebay until it all gets sorted out.

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.
