Non UK or EU VAT registered buyers can have most classes of VAT refunded on their purchases - please note that auctioneers are under no obligation to provide VAT refunds, although many will offer this service.  HMRC are the ultimate refunding authority.  VAT refunds are subject to provision of statutory export/import documentation.  HMRC have decreed that VAT on buyer's premium is always payable whether the buyer is domiciled in the UK, the EU or outside the EU or wherever the goods are to be sent.  So auctioneers cannot refund VAT on buyer's premium if the goods are sold under normal VAT rules.
