Can’t wait ‘til ThemeFusion realise they owe $700k to their governments under this new system you’re telling us was always the case.

We earn taxable income from Envato and have always paid taxes on this income. Why would an author suddenly have to pay more tax with this new system? Note: ThemeFusion is not in UK, and I’m sure most of their customers are outside UK too.

old thread is old!


Is there a working 3rd party solution in the meantime to really AUTO-update plugins from this marketplace?

Not for WordPress plugins, only WordPress themes. Official Envato WordPress theme update plugin is here: https://github.com/envato/envato-wordpress-toolkit

You can install this plugin and it will let you install/backup/update all your purchased WordPress themes rather easily.

With the new fee setup, our author fee is 12.5% and this is currently represented in the statement as follows:
"Date","Order ID","Type","Detail","Item ID","Amount","Site" 
"2014-10-08 18:12:21 +1100","","Sale"," item name ","2621629","44.80","CodeCanyon"
So now we would report our total revenue/turnover as $51.20 44.8/(1-12.5%) and our total expenses as $6.40

Spot on!

What’s missing from the statement is the gross number (which you’ve extrapolated backwards to get). It’s a bit complicated to explain, but that set of changes on the statement touches a bunch of bigger things at the back. So we’re busy working up the revised Statement page which will list it as well. Shouldn’t be too long!

Thank you ! :) this finally makes sense to me.

Please put a sticky note on a dev’s machine to make sure past statements reflect the old rates (so we can see a history of all our fees etc..). Current CSV statements make it impossible to detemine what rates you were on (and hence, impossible to calculate your total revenue/turnover for accurate tax office reporting).

Looking forward to the new statement changes.

Cheers, Dave

Yes unfortunately this happens from time to time (I’ve had many over the years!). Don’t worry about “negative seo” or anything like that.

Hit the little “flag” icon next to the comments and report them. Ignore any further emails/messages and flag any further comments.

Hang tight and wait for Envato support to deal with the abusive buyer, and just keep working on your awesome products :)

Thanks Collis for taking the time to explain all of this to the community. Hang in there! :)

Ok so prior to Sep 1st our author fee was 30% and it was represented in the statement as follows:

"Date","Type","Detail","Item ID","Amount","Rate","Price","Site" 
"2014-08-31 02:38:07 +1000","Sale"," item name ","2621629","44.80","70","64.00","CodeCanyon"

So prior to Sep 1st we would report our total revenue/turnover as $64.00 to the tax office, and our expenses as $19.20 ( 30% author fee ).

With the new fee setup, our author fee is 12.5% and this is currently represented in the statement as follows:

"Date","Order ID","Type","Detail","Item ID","Amount","Site" 
"2014-10-08 18:12:21 +1100","","Sale"," item name ","2621629","44.80","CodeCanyon"

So now we would report our total revenue/turnover as $51.20 44.8/(1-12.5%) and our total expenses as $6.40

Hopefully I’ve understood this, and without asking for financial advice, is this how we should be reporting to the tax office?

Yep I’ve got a few planned features for my 3rd party support system but I’m kinda holding off until I know what/if Envato is releasing anything soon.

However I think unique things like priority paid support tickets (quite popular) would still require 3rd party scripts.

I’ve just sent out a newsletter asking for UCM developers. I’m getting 1 email a day from people requesting custom dev work.

(the other issue: my “vacation” ended yesterday but yesterday it still had “5 days left” on the comment box).

hard to re-produce as you have to wait a few days to see it.
