The law has recently changed to allow certain second-hand vehicles to be sold using the VAT margin scheme. VAT is calculated based on the difference between the initial purchase price and the sale price instead of on the full sale price. In addition to this, vehicles sold under the purchase price will be exempt from VAT. There is no requirement to use the scheme, but in many situations utilizing the margin scheme to sell a second-hand vehicle could save you a considerable sum of money.

VAT On Vehicle Sales

Due to all the conditions with the scheme, it is advised to seek expert assistance to determine whether your circumstance is eligible for the scheme. All individuals wishing to partake in the scheme must prove whether the vehicle itself and the initial purchase of the vehicle are eligible.

There are multiple areas of VAT on vehicle sales and the margin scheme that we can help you with at The Accountancy Solutions, including;
