In the end, decent sales every week, but nooooow… suppadrop!
See ya in 2015, sales!
you don’t add VAT but do you send an invoice? Sorry Travis but as long Collis doesn’t post a clear statement you have to deal with these questions
Exactly. Link blog pieces is totally insufficient, official (and clear) answers are needed. Up to now almost everything doesn’t worth even the time to be read.
I, We, already spent too much words on this. Is crystal clear that Envato is the seller. Just check the money flow (only thing that matters in financial terms)
We can only wait for further changes and official news. Hoping this time they won’t be written on a piece of paper on Collis desk but publicly on the forum..!
PS: this sticky speech is just so ridiculous.. almost debasing to world class professionals like us.
This post by Collis was purely an informational post
...We will continue to share any information as we can. Thanks!
no and… no!
That is an important update that already took effect on our statement and was not reported in those official threads.
I also posted on the official one, but is normal to have authors going mad for this. Collis is deciding on our (author) lifes!
Plus now the original thread on VAT by Collis is no more sticky!!
Travis, I know you are only doing your work, but if there’s one to blame this time, is Collis. Not writing anything on the forum sounds too much like having guilty conscience.
Anyway, +1, let’s close these and go back to the original one (and let’s make it sticky please)
That’s true, as long as Envato won’t start or be forced to report our incomes, similar to what USA authors are facing. Then we will have a problem if what they tell is not matching our bank accounts.
Yes but this raise another question. Who is behind an account?
Can be frelancer or two (or more) cooperants. How to manage incoices? How to register and declare that?
I also said that VAT is not for everyone: my business plan doesn’t have it.
This is just a huge mess, and in my opinion can’t be controlled in an universal way but from case to case.
My plan for 2015 is to find other sources of income, not rely only on Envato.
How can’t I agree..
But saddest thing is that we will lose days to care at financial stuff instead of doing our true work and what we want to do: create and improve.
Aren’t you going off-topic with last replies in this thread?
Just to keep all our speeches on a single place. I’d have to paste here my reply from Collis’s one
Anyway, remember money flow people. What matters for financial things is money flow and until we won’t have gross incomes credited on our bank accounts in real-time, we can’t be direct sellers
(at least, this is what I and my accountant think)
Really unfair to not post anything here. Shows how we are taken into consideration..!
Anyway, nothing new. Envato is preparing everything to support what they keep saying in last months: authors are direct sellers.
Statement change hiding our net income and specially “bulk Author Fee invoice from Envato” are tools to try keep standing a false affirmation.
But what truly matters is still money flow, whatever system or chart you implement.
We will never have gross income credited on our bank accounts, then under legal speech that invoice is junk.
