No Carmen it didn’t help. Short question: Does Envato collect GST (Goods and Services Tax)? For example when an author sells a theme worth $50 then does Envato pay 10% GST (about $5 per each sale).

There should be clear information about who is paying Value-Added Tax here – Envato or authors.

There is a mistake in the ToS: http://themeforest.net/legal/membership
By being registered as a Member, you are entitled to:

    buy Products from other Members;
    sell Products to other Members (subject to clause 15);

ToS is trying to say that Envato works like eBay but it’s not true.

Then price of theme for companies should be $45.40, not $50.

i think there’s an EU law that says that all non-EU companies that provide digital goods to EU customers should charge VAT depending on the country where the customer is located. Then envato would have to pay the vat to that country.

As I know digital good is a service and if company is registered in Australia then service is executed in Australia, so buyer pays their value added tax.

OK, but still I don’t understand why Envato doesn’t add 10% VAT to theme price.

If they sell themes for non-business customers then they should collect 10% VAT – http://world.tax-rates.org/australia/sales-tax

I know how VAT system works :D The point is if you are buying a theme on Themeforest, then who is a seller? Envato or me?

If Envato is an Australian-based company then they should add VAT (10%) to all prices – http://world.tax-rates.org/australia/sales-tax

Who should collect VAT here? Envato (10% VAT) or authors/sellers?

I just find following info here: http://themeforest.net/legal/membership
You are responsible for paying all fees and taxes (including withholding tax), associated with your use of the Sites wherever levied (including any goods and services or value added taxes, which will be added to amounts billed to you, if applicable).

Right now I pay 20% CIT and 35% of national insurance. So as I understand I have to pay VAT (25%) too?
