What is the VAT implications on this transaction.
VAT on a ‘New’ item are at current full VAT rate of 20%. On Second Hand item VAT is on the margin ie/ the difference between cost price and selling price only is charged at 20%. On a Private Treaty item there is NO VAT applicable. During the creation process the VAT code will be automatically assigned depending on the origin of the item (if from Old Gold or forfeited pledge). This can also be selected during the creation of the item and in the pricing. We need the option of selecting ZERO VAT on any item if applicable so gold coins and recreated pledges can be manually assigned a zero VAT code if needed.
