I have a client that buys and sells lego and other items but mainly lego on ebay. Ebay have told him he needs to prove he is VAT registered and can't sell on there anymore until he proves it. He is below the threshold and I am at a loss to try and fix his situation because even HMRC have said they are aware of Ebay saying customers needs to register when they don't. He does use other platforms but eBay seems to be more successful.
He keeps asking me to provide a certificate to say he is exempt but he is not exempt. He is below the threshold. Even with waiting times to register for VAT, it really is not an option for him to register as all his profit would go on VAT payments. Anyone else had this problem and found a solution?
