Default Dreaded ebay vat email - new company old ebay account

I've had an email from ebay stating they will suspend the account in 30 days due to hitting the vat threshold. However I started a new co around a month ago and changed name and business name on ebay also. Has anyone had success with this as of late? I've only done 50-60k during the month of trading but that's due to a spike with the covid situation

If you feel your change of company was legitimate and not a means to avoid VAT then explain your situation to HMRC and ask them for a letter to that effect. Ebay might take that but if you do nothing then you'll be suspended.

Based upon recent similar tales, coupled with ebay (and Amazon) being potentially held responsible for VAT evasion then I dont even this this route would work and they'll demand a VAT registration number.
