    quote Paul Humble:

    Its not that I mind paying it Peter, it just caught my eye today that some charge it and some dont on carriage.

    On a semi related point, a local breakers yard charges VAT on his second hand parts, for years garages have complained about it but after reading this thread it appears he is doing no wrong.

    Paul you have to charge vat if your turnover exceeds (I stand to be corrected) £67k
    that’s the law for the majority of business.
    most couriers are national if not international so well exceed that limit.
    VAT is chargeable.
    Like I already said though, if a supplier pass it on without adding to the cost, then its included, but you are still paying the vat, its just not itemised.
    If they add a mark up then they have to charge and itemise the vat as the government want a share of the mark up!

    I think that is the way it works
