  • works of art
  • antiques
  • collectors’ items

You cannot use a margin scheme for:

  • any item you bought for which you were charged VAT
  • precious metals
  • investment gold
  • precious stones

Please be aware that there are different rules if you’re selling:

  • Second hand vehicles
  • Horses and ponies
  • Houseboats and caravans
  • Items that have been pawned
  • High volume, low price items, where the Global Accounting Scheme can be used instead
