I’m not sure what’s worse at this point between the people freaking out or the people saying there’s nothing to worry about.

I don’t understand how someone could honestly say that ThemePunch’s situation is just some normal occurance that shouldn’t even concern anyone until the hammer drops. Any time the government gets involved, especially when it comes to a situation so up in the air as this one, I think people are well within their right mind to be extremely concerned, especially when the potential penalties are so steep (especially in ThemePunch’s case). Dealing with the gov’t is hard enough when you have all of your ducks in a row, much less dealing with them with such an up in the air situation as we’re all looking at with Envato.

A lot of folks, myself included, do this full time as our only source of income, so we have a lot riding on the success of this marketplace. Even if the authors are in the clear and the burden falls on Envato, that’s not necessarily a reason to breathe easy since Envato could get hit hard, which would in turn affect us negatively as well.

I don’t advocate freaking out, but I certainly don’t advocate acting like we have nothing to worry about here. There is plenty at stake, and while Envato handling the VAT from here on out is a major win for the authors, there are still some pretty serious outstanding issues that, as I said before, are only made worse by Envato failing to address them.

+1 very well written

That’s the problem.. Envato says (official statement via taxinfo@envato.com ) that we all are sellers from beginning. So all EU authors can be in problems now because of past VAT..
Can you post the full quote from the message you’ve got from them where they say this?

Here is important part:

The author is still the ‘seller’ in the sense that there is a license from the author to the buyer, the author still takes responsibility for the content they are licensing, author income is the item price less author fee and so on.

Yeh but those are EU / US companies.. Envato is Australian based and AUS only recently being asked to comply.. similar to my country.

If this system is from beginning as they say it is they pay (in my opinion) far less taxes. So… if they say “ok, ok we are the sellers” then envato is in violation and the top dogs go by by for a lot of years or pay humangus fines which could bring envato to there knees. In the other case we all go by by and again envato goes down.

Yeah! +1

I don’t care about future VAT… I care about “past” VAT which should be paid.

What if your tax office comes to you and asks you to prove that you are not the seller? And then they want to see the ToS, which state that the authors are the sellers?

Seller is someone who acts like seller. Isn’t it?

Seller (in law point of view) is not the same as “seller” in ToS. My opinion.
