How do taxes (VAT) work for sellers?

As Artfinder's commission is charge for a service provided to our sellers, we are obliged to charge 20% VAT on our commission and transaction fee to UK residents and non-VAT registered members of the European Community.

VAT is currently chargeable by Artfinder in the following circumstances:
  • You are UK resident 
  • You are resident in the EC (not UK) but not VAT registered
VAT is not currently chargeable by Artfinder to you in the following circumstances
  • You are resident in the EC (not UK) and VAT registered and have provided us with a valid VAT (or equivalent) registration number together with sufficient other evidence that is acceptable to HM Revenue & Customs and as required under EC law and regulation
  • You are resident outside the UK and the EC
