Default VAT number - restriction

Hi there

Has anyone found a solution to the VAT number situation.

Ebay has limited several of my accounts, I sell high value item, and can easily go above 85k turnover If I am not careful. i understand all of you will say, open more accounts, spread sales etc, yes this is what i had done. It is easiser said than done in my situation. As my market is so competitive. It takes a new account years to build up the search ranking. Every restriction in a established account is a massive HIT to me.

If anyone has a solution to it, please let me know.

I am pretty sure there is solutions to it, as otherwise how does all these chinese sellers get away with a vat number, pretty sure they dont file their vat return right?

Is there any way i could buy a vat number as such in my name?

If anyone can shed lights, it is much appreciated.

As the VAT numbers are checked, buying one is a non-starter, if its even possible.

The general concsensus on this board is there's no way around it, to avoid account linking and to keep HMRC off your case you need a VAT number for each 85K+ account.

Of course there's a way around it as far as paying your taxes goes, you get an accountant to set up a holding company which your stealth accounts feed into. But that doesn't negate the need for multiple VAT numbers.
