VAT rules

To be able to purchase an item VAT free at PS Auction from another EU country the following is required:

  • The buyer has a valid VAT number
  • The buyer can demonstrate in writing that the item has been brought out of Sweden


To be able to purchase an item VAT free at PS Auction from countries outside the EU is required

Deposit

At PS Auction, Swedish VAT is deposited on winning bids. The deposit is refunded upon presentation of valid export documents.

Valid documents within the EU are, for example, CMR (freight bill with truck), registration certificate in the new country, temporary movement permits or other evidence that the item has been permanently removed from Sweden.

Valid documents for export outside the EU are customs documents or proof of registration in the new country.

Avoid deposit

The deposit can be avoided when the invoice is over SEK 10,000 by the buyer, in connection with payment, submitting our document "Export Declaration" completed and presenting a forwarders' certificate from a serious freight forwarder that guarantees that the item is shipped out of the country or otherwise proves that the object (s) is exported.

The freight forwarder must contain information about the shipper of the shipment, pick-up address, delivery address, marking of the item, (chassis number for registered vehicle), the shipper's VAT number and the shipper's signature.

If you want to avoid a VAT deposition, do the following (only apply to invoices over SEK 10,000):

  1. When you receive the invoice from us, you pay the invoice amount excl.vat.

  2. Fill in and submit the document "Export Declaration" written with all the required information.

  3. Submit proof that the item will be exported (CMR, ferry ticket or other proof)

  4. Once you have received a credit invoice on VAT, the export processing is complete and your goods are ready for pick up.

  5. Pick up your goods

However, if someone else is going to pick up your item, you must approve the item you purchased before picking it up and send in a proxy for the person to pick up. A proxy can be emailed to us.
