Surely the price you bid is the price you pay, charging VAT after and
stating you're going to charge VAT breaches ebay rules? I personally avoid
anyone who say's they're going to charge 17.5% VAT ontop of the price at the
end.

ebay states

ebay does allow VAT to be added if applied in the correct manner.
If there is no mention of VAT in the item description, the seller should not
add VAT to the final item price. In such a case, if VAT is legally due, the
seller bears the responsibility of paying that VAT to the appropriate
authorities according to any applicable laws and regulations. Again, if
there is any question as to the seller's VAT responsibilities, the seller
should consult an independent tax advisor and/or local tax authority.

have a search through the selling help to get all the rules and
recommendations.........

Face it, if the final price did not have to add an additional 17.5% then the
final bid may have been higher.
you'd pay similar weather it be vat or not IME

The trouble is, from the feedback I've seen on seller's who user such
methods, buyers generally don't read the item description, and then they
leave a neg when they find VAT added. The bids probably do go nearly as
high as they would have anyway, because the buyers don't notice.
However, I don't bid on such auctions as a matter of principle though
unless it was something I couldn't find elsewhere
