From 20th February 2008, we'll be changing the policy around how sellers are allowed to treat VAT in their listings.
Currently, we leave it to sellers to decide whether they include VAT in the selling price or add it after the sale at the checkout.
Based on strong feedback from both the buyer and seller community, we're changing the policy so that it will no longer be permissible to add VAT charges to an item after the sale. If you're VAT registered, and therefore must charge VAT on the items you sell, the prices visible to buyers in your listings must be inclusive of VAT.
