Seems rather odd to me. VAT = Value Added Tax. It does not depend on something
being new or used. As long as there is value added, there is tax to be payed.

The regular situation is a percentage VAT. However Consumers can't charge
VAT so if you buy from a Consumer and sell again, you have to pay VAT on the
difference (if positive), because that is the value added. Most of the time it
will be used items, but in principle the items could be new as well. That does
not make any difference.

I think it is a little more complicated then that. Yes you have to pay Vat when
you are a professional seller and only on the profit margin, but the consumer
doesn't usually pay VAT on used items so i can understand this question.

In NL they are called margin goods and it is up to the seller to either charge
VAT or to not charge it on their bill and they usually do not. And if you sell
consumer to consumer you do not pay VAT but there is this grey area of when you
are a consumer and when you are in business. When you buy a book read it and
sell it on you do not need to pay VAT even if you sell it for more then you bought
it for but if i you buy it with intention to sell at a profit then you do need
to pay VAT.

So i do understand this question but the rules differ per country that why it
is probably impossible for BL to differentiate
