Are products purchased/sold at auctions subject to VAT (e.g., second-hand/amortized machines or cars)?

It depends on the nature of the sale. If the seller carries out an economic activity, VAT applies. If an individual sells a personal car, then it is not subject to VAT. If an intermediary manages the auction and charges a commission without owning the goods, then it is a service and the commission expense is subject to a VAT fixed rate.
