Alex Watts : Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Alex Watts : How much is owing please?
JACUSTOMER-7zl3wh3h- : €7000
Alex Watts : How was it agreed with the seller, in writing please?
JACUSTOMER-7zl3wh3h- : It was agreed in a written contract between myself and the seller, the contract was in Dutch, since the sale I have asked for proof that the seller has payed the tax but to this date I have not received any paperwork regarding this, i bought the item through personal finance and the sale price was deposited into their bank account in full less the tax, it was up to the seller to declare the sale to the government of Belgium
Alex Watts : Do you mean that VAT is payable or some other tax please?
JACUSTOMER-7zl3wh3h- : Vat
Alex Watts : Is the issue whether you can actually afford it or whether vat has been paid?
