    Hi Mish,

    Usually, you have to look at the actions of the business, rather than following a strict formula. For example, if a Barber shop bought razors from a razor manufacturer, this would be considered a B2B transaction, whereas if an individual bought razors from the company, if would not, because there is no commercial reason for the purchase. The barber needs the razors for its business, the lay person needs them to shave. Similarly, however, if the barber bought a playstation for his/her own house, this would not be a B2B transaction, even if the barber him/herself is a sole trader and therefore a business person.

    For example, see s2(2)-(3) of the Consumer Rights Act 2015:

    (2) “Trader” means a person acting for purposes relating to that person's trade, business, craft or profession, whether acting personally or through another person acting in the trader's name or on the trader's behalf.
    (3) “Consumer” means an individual acting for purposes that are wholly or mainly outside that individual's trade, business, craft or profession.

    Hope this helps!
