Actually it will not, in the end i get money from them, and i would need info for each and every client. Our laws are like that. If i don’t get a visible payment on my bank account from each client it doesn’t mean a squat! Envato is not a financial institution meaning a bank.
collis… i will be direct… either you really don’t get me/us or you are deliberately evading the questions/statements.
IT IS NOT an issue that you always had this system, we are trying to TELL YOU that if it was always as you say, you did it WRONG, hence ILLEGAL for EU laws! your system that you mention would require us to issue an invoice to each and every client for that we would need all there info and vat info.
If they pay me I have to issue an invoice to each and every one of them and i have to charge VAT accordingly!
Meaning that I also have to have power for a refund and in my SWIFT account meaning BANK account, every transaction has to be visible.
But now I get only one transaction from envato, by our laws you pay me! And since it is an Australian company out side of EU and it is a licence business i am not obligatory to pay VAT as an author.
Please do not respond with this kind of answers as they are misleading
Even for the past all of this invoice have been reported to our TAX institutions and if I report now for the past i am up to serious penalty or jail as this would count under tax evasion and to be honest were the hell would i get 22% of all the income to pay for the past?
Please these are not badges or design issues on the site this are serious existential issues!
Oooo… and don’t forget that there could be a penalty for actually not paying all the taxes, you have to defend the notion why did you evade this tax. Edit: you already sad fines
How will you know who is from were? How can you verify someone if he checks he is from US?
And if you charge VAT you have to pay vat to the country from were is the buyer. You want to tell us you will have an agreement with al EU country’s?
This is all getting really messy. It worked well till now why do you want to mess it all? Only reason is that last system changing saved you millions upon millions but it complicated tons of other things.
The main question here is who do we “bill”... ?
1. Envato 2. Customer
1. If Envato on the end of the month, we do not charge VAT, simple as it is. (envato does the rest) 2. If a customer, we need all the info, name surname, company, address and VAT number, if they are company or not and if they are are the VAT compliant or not. After that we decide based on our country laws if we charge vat or not.
That how simple it is. For now on my bank account I get whole money from Envato and by the law envato is payer and i am the buyer… I issue an invoice to envato simple as that.
1 way Is simple 2 way we close the shop, with our traffic and invoices we would have to issue just the accountant cost would terminate us.
so… that’s the info we need.
I understand everything and i do respect the work reviewers do, but sometimes you guys get so stuck on protocols that you do not see some stuff. For example a while a go we had a soft reject and among few points we had one that told us that a certain part that arose in theme check should not be middle aligned, but our design dictated that it has to be it was a design feature.
One more point requested that upon install sidebar has to be activated and in most of themes you can manage this on each page separately and we deliberately leave it without.
I am talking about this kind of issues that repeat on almost any submission and first soft reject almost always consists from this kind of issues that actually are not issues.
Sometimes even when we get almost everything cleaned, other reviewer get this and again we go trough questions from before and all of this prologues acceptance time which for us is a big loss of money.
You do know this is not a side earning and with new changes coming to the market place less and less people will decide to do this for side earnings.
So if you feel frustrated can you imagine how we feel our time and money being wasted for few more days waiting with these kind of things.
In the past I was ok with it since reviews were done on daily basis, now days they need for almost each review up to 7 days, if you take average 4 working days and you get 4 rejections… do the math.
Already opend this kind of thread a while a go, now i see a lot of valid points from enabled here, but then explain to me this situation.
After we got 3 rejections already the story continued like this:
1. soft reject – just one thing: “a certain text” has to be added on item description page
add, re upload the same theme in 5 min, wait for 4 days
2. soft reject – nothing works we cannot test the page any more
re upload the same theme, again wait for 3 days
3. soft reject – just 3 more points to fix (minor style issues)
any logical explanation besides “well they are human after all” or “somebody is messing with you, haha its a good joke” :/
