Customer Question

We recently sold our static caravan on site for £2000. We were told that there would be a 15% commission charge. There was no agreement in writing but we accepted it, even though they had no involvement with the sale. We received the invoice for the £300, to which he had added £60 VAT. Is this correct.

Hello,

If you agreed to the 15% sales commission and if the person is VAT registered, yes, it is correct what they are asking you to pay.

You may ask them for evidence of their VAT registration and check with HMRC that they are indeed registered for VAT and you should ensure that you receive a VAT invoice when you pay the £360 inclusive of 20% VAT.

Hope this helps
