What is the situation regards vat on scrap payments
If it's farm waste and your vat registered then you charge vat, if it's an old car that's your personal property then no. Alternatively you do like a lot and put it through your other half's bank account ,good idea to occasionally do a load with VAT in case you get an inspection from vat or tax


Thanks for the replies I have quite a bit to take in just want to be sure where I am with vat
Just tell the scrapyard there is VAT to pay on it. You give them a VAT invoice, they pay you scrap price plus VAT and then they claim the VAT back.
All very simple and straight forward. The VAT you collect goes in your accounts and dealt with when you do your returns.
