Hi there, my first post and not sure if this is a stupid question, but I was looking on the website and they mention on there that you need a license to sell tvs. It also says on the tv license website that you need to notify them of all sales.
Has anyone else come across this and would it be necessary for a sole trader?

Hi - yes it's true you do need a license to sell TVs in the UK.

After reading the info I'm fairly certain that this applies to all sellers even sole traders. When you register (Link hidden: Login to view), just put your name as the company name.

Hope that helps :)
