Hi could some kind person point me in the right direction as I try and buy a LW licence from someone in another European city. Do Newtek have a website page or something for this ?

thanks

That person should contact customer support/sales at NewTek/LightWave 3D Group. This will trigger the process. And they will instruct both of you what to do. If you want to initiate it, contact them yourself and they will explain the process. On top of the price you negotiate with the seller, it will cost an additional 100 USD for the license transfer which is paid to NewTek.

I have actually been charged $100 plus 20% British tax, which goes to who exactly. Never saw that mentioned anywhere.

U.K VAT is not something you can avoid.. LWG takes that money, which they in turn have to pay to U.K. It is part of the international tax agreements between countries. Although I would imagine LWG have an agent that handles that for them.
