    Setup an account for the school and sell them through that.

    Then use the paypal money to purchase things like toner cartridges or cables.

    Can you do this legally? Is it basically just a written agreement?

    I suppose it's ok with things like wireless access points, monitors etc... but when it comes to PC's there are data protection issues i do believe- which can cause legal issues if not adhered to.

    It's funny- there are always time issues with things like this. Whacking something up for sale is quick- formatting, finding OS disks, installing new OS...just takes so much time when there are billions of other priorities to be doing. It's a challenge

    I don't know if the bean counters would like the we'll donate/give them to you and then you pay us something from what you make.

    This would still be generating income from something the school originally claimed vat back on and therefore they would still have to pay the vat of the money made back to the government?

    When we've sold stuff whatever it sold for you work out what the vat would be and that tells you what you need to pay back the rest is the schools to keep.
