    I've just been going through some invoices and noticed that from one company I've been charged vat on the postage charge. I don't know much about vat but is that right?

    Wether its right/legal or not I dont know.But I have certainly bought from places that add on vat after the postage has been added.

    I would have thought that VAT should be added on after the postage.

    thanks all.
    I only queried it as a lot of places I've ordered from don't seem to have added vat to the postage, just the items I was buying.

    Yes, it's right.

    When you buy stamps, IIRC, there is no VAT on the postage.

    Any VAT registered retailer / supplier must add VAT onto the entire bill rather than just the VATable elements.

    e.g. if I buy a train ticket for 10 (I wish!) there is 0 of VAT on it. If I then charge this to my client, I invoice for 10 + VAT since I am VAT registered, so 10.15.

    HTH,

    It's never too late to gyrate!
