For UK users, read the last paragraph here. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-supplying-digital-services-to-private-consumers/vat-businesses-supplying-digital-services-to-private-consumersDigital portals, platforms, gateways and marketplaces If you supply e-services to consumers through an internet portal, gateway or marketplace, you need to determine whether you are making the supply to the consumer or to the platform operator. If the platform operator identifies you as the seller but sets the general terms and conditions, or authorises payment, or handles delivery/download of the digital service, the platform is considered to be supplying the consumer. They are therefore responsible for accounting for the VAT payment that is charged to the consumer.
Quoted from the other thread Preparing for Upcoming VAT ChangesSo this is the definite answer on who is the seller.
KingDog saidThen please do us all the favor and open a new sticky thread with the title “Who is the seller”. Then we can all go there
Hey again. It appears we are just unable to keep this post on topic. As mentioned already, this thread is about updating your country of residence and not about the buyer/seller relationship. You are welcome to discuss other topics by opening a new thread, but we need to get this thread back on topic or we will have no choice but to lock it. When we stray off-topic we make it nearly impossible for people to get any help and the mass confusion can clearly been seen in this thread. Thanks!
For the love of almighty guardians of the galaxy team.
Please avoid giving answers based on what one think he understood. You may be correct, is not this the point, but we don’t want this to become another “Authors, VAT and a Global Marketplace” with 500 replies where each one speculates and give answers and reply to each other. We all know how that thread ended.
For users please ask questions and then wait for the staff to answer. Avoid answering to other users. Even if you are correct is not official till staff reply to the question. We need official answers to refer to, because else in a few years we may get some new change and we get to the same point as we are now with “Hey we thought everyone knew that you have to give all the money you’ve earned in the past back to marketplace starting 1 January 2020”
For staff, please quote each question and provide an answer if possible. If not please specify for each question that you don’t know or you can’t answer.
Thank You (again authors/buyers not saying you didn’t understood correctly, but please leave the staff to answer each issue as dumb it may look to others)
Waiting for these answers, as well.revaxarts said
