Can I claim back VAT on used products?
Q. Can I claim back VAT on used products?
A. VAT cannot be claimed back on second-hand items. On second-hand items, when applicable, VAT is calculated under the VAT Margin Scheme, as defined by HM Revenue & Customs. Under this scheme VAT is not shown separately.
VAT can only be claimed back on items in our used section that have the following condition ratings;
- MO (Mail order return: Goods have been despatched but returned unopened)
- OB (Open Box: Goods have been opened, inspected and returned as unwanted)
- R (Refurbished by the Manufacturer)
