United Baristas has both trade and retail businesses as well as individuals as users. This article communicates best practice when communicating the listing price to avoid potential confusion.
Entering the selling price
Always list the item’s price inclusive of VAT, if any.
United Baristas does not offer an option to list items excluding VAT.
The listed price is the advertised price, inclusive of VAT, if any.
We are now providing more specific advice to avoid confusion where one or both of the parties are VAT registered.
In is important to note that a significant proportion of United Baristas members are unlikely to be VAT registered.
If you are VAT registered, we recommend that you communicate this in the listing’s description as it is relevant for prospective VAT registered buyers.
If you are purchasing an item and are VAT registered do not assume that the seller is also VAT registered. If you are uncertain, contact the seller for clarification.
