Education is VAT exempt, I believe worldwide.
Therefore if I were a school of languages for example and I charge my customers 100£ for a course, I will have not VAT on it.
Now, let's say I engage an agent, so another company that will sell my course for the same price, but I will give them 10% commission. Is the agent liable for VAT on these 10%? Or should the same VAT of the main service/good be applied(Vat exempt)?
As a school I will never make a distinction between studying and selling my programme and the agent neither, in fact the agent will sale at the same exact price. I have been looking for this information online but I can't find any formal explanation.
Could reverse Vat rule be applied on the commission so that the school will play for it, since the school exempt?
