Instead of opening yet another pointless thread, why don’t you follow natman’s advice and send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Maybe perhaps it’s some info that we would all be interested in knowing? Why keeping everything private? Now they locked us even from asking questions…. Since we all know they ignore threads that are not sticky. They still left many unanswered questions in the locked thread, not that I would’ve expected anything else.
January, don’t be shy, I don’t bite.
Those questions were already answered and they’re pretty easy, I really don’t understand why people keep asking the same questions that were already answered 100 times instead of us all trying to get answers to some really important and basic questions like who’s the seller and how the new “invoices” will look like.
1) The same amount as before, the VAT will be kept by Envato.
2) It has been written numerous times that Envato will collect it and that you have nothing to do yourself.
Penalties are penalties, but let’s not compare penalties for $30 taxes and for $50,000 in taxes.
uckhandla saidWhy would you do that? You’re not even in the EU, so all of this stuff hardly affects you..
I have deleted my all items.
But What if buyer are from EU?
I have been sent an email to Envato, but they have not replied yet.
I also write to reviewer to hold these items, but the process not going on.
If someone answer these questions, i will upload my about to ready WordPress theme.http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/preparing-for-upcoming-vat-changes/151408?page=54#1188246
So what? Seriously, you have barely 100 and a few sales and worry like you’d need to pay tens of thousands of dollars in penalties if something bad.
We are worried, but let’s not make drama here when it’s not required, you’re not even from EU so if Envato currently sells without VAT, you definitely can sleep just well.
Submit an update to the item with the same files and ask them to soft-disable them
purethemes saidNon-EU-Companies like Envato don’t care.
Question is, is selling here even legal now?
Note to tech companies outside the EU: Although nothing changes for you when selling digital products to EU companies or consumers, officially you have to charge VAT rates of the country of the buyer (since 2003). I don’t get the feeling that any US startup is paying attention to this, or has implemented it, for that matter. I have yet to see the first VAT implementation by a US startup. I think all companies outside of the EU are just keeping quiet and ignoring the law while happily selling digital goods to the EU.
Considering they’re oficially the sellers, yes. But they’re not saying that, even if we all know it
I’m making money while I sleep. And while you sleep too.
Congratulations! But sorry to tell you that the goodie pack comes at 125k.
Welcome to the club!
Withdraw the money directly to their account via Envato so the money will never arrive at you directly, otherwise it’s more complicated, legally speaking(for taxes) I do every month several different withdrawals
