Retail procurement of metals

The procurement of metals for professionals (craftsmen, electricians, plumbers, roofers, mechanics, etc.) or private individuals is a highly regulated activity. This activity is governed by strict and detailed rules. It is therefore essential that these rules should be observed.

A declaration to the tax authorities of any revenue collected in conjunction with the sale or purchase of metals is mandatory.

We reserve the right to refuse any goods, the source or origin of which is questionable, or where the vendor claims to be acting for a third party.

It should be considered that the procurement of metals from private individuals is governed by law, and that any breach will result in severe consequences.

  • Article L. 324-144 of the Code of Labour limits procurement from private individuals to the amount of 3,000 euros in any 6-month period.
  • Article 1450 UA of the General Tax Code limits procurement from private individuals to the amount of 5,000 euros per annum
