I like looking at the Google search strings that have led people to TameBay: it’s interesting to watch the trends come and go, seeing WAGs hoodies replaced with Webkinz at the moment, for example. Then there are the questions that come up again and again, and I’m going to make a conscious effort to answer some of them. One common one that’s shown up again today is about VAT on Paypal fees. I see this question on the eBay boards too, typically “how do I find out the VAT element paid on my Paypal fees”.
The nice simple answer is that there *is* no VAT element paid on your Paypal fees. Financial services, including Paypal, are exempt from VAT, and therefore none is charged.
Don’t you wish all questions had such a straightforward answer 😀
