Ebay tax UK
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I have a question regarding taxation/business advice and ebay.
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
If an Ebay account is held in one persons name, with all proceeds from sales being paid into their bank account via ebay managed payments. Can this then be transferred to another person who is the actual owner of the business for tax and other purposes
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Without effecting the earning levels etc of the individual whos bank is paid into by Ebay managed payments.
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I ask as the ebay account may be owed by one person who are required to attach their own bank account now due to managed payments.However the actual business owner is another person.Hope somebody can help advise

You are merely acting as a banker so no tax liability attaches to you.
