For auctioneers: 5 points to know when the seller ISN'T a vendor

by , 10 February 2016

When the seller isn't a vendor, there are 5 important points to remember. They are:

Point#1:

You and the seller can arrange that you'll charge VAT on the goods you sell.

For example, Mrs. Anderson owns a boutique and isn't registered for VAT. At the end of every year, she holds an auction to sell any excess stock. Even though she isn't a vendor, she and auctioneer decide to charge VAT on the sale of the goods.

The goods are sold including VAT, and the auctioneer pays the VAT over to SARS on his VAT return.

He then takes his fee and pays MRS. Anderson the balance, net of VAT.
