What Tax thing?
This is the current forum on taxes. http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/authors-vat-and-a-global-marketplace/148034 This is the notice http://marketblog.envato.com/news/authors-vat-global-marketplace/
At the moment it looks like they are going to delay the US reporting thing until they sort out all the necessary details, which could take a while! Who knows, maybe they will leave it up to US authors in the the end, the way it’s handled now. 8)

From this document, section 3 page 22/92 http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/resources/documents/taxation/vat/how_vat_works/telecom/explanatory_notes_2015_en.pdf

Some indicators suggesting that a taxable person takes part in the supply are listed below:

– Owning or managing the technical platform over which the services are delivered;
– Being responsible for the actual delivery;
– Being responsible for collecting payment unless the only involvement of the taxable person is the processing of payment;
– Controlling or exerting influence over the pricing;
– Being the one legally required to issue a VAT invoice, receipt or bill to the end user in respect of the supply;
– Providing customer care or support in relation to queries about or problems with the service itself;
– Exerting control or influence over the presentation and format of the virtual market place (such as app stores or websites) such that the brand and identity of the taxable person are significantly more prominent than those of other persons involved in the supply;
– Having legal obligations or liabilities in relation to the service provided;?xplanatory
– Owning the customer data related to the supply in question;
– Being in a position to credit a sale without the supplier’s permission or prior approval in cases where the supply was
not properly received.

What would you be if you were attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped helically around an axis?
screwed

Only because an extra-form to fill-up? Only if someone has reasons to feel that way…. Personally I don’t see Envato this way. But this isn’t a discussion about how stable or not Envato is.

My only question (in a previous post) was if this will be applied soon to European authors too.

My post was in answer to the riddle that StoneColed posted.

If you read more of this thread you will find that the possible ramifications go far beyond filling out an extra form.

I think the complexities of anything to do with taxes may have drawn out the October date a bit
I hear that!

Thanks for the response KingDog, I know it’s an issue that’s weighing heavily on the minds of many authors here.

IMO not being registered with a PRO can be a unique selling proposition. Some people are explicitly looking for tracks they won’t have to pay these extra royalities for.
It’s not the purchaser who pays the extra royalties, it is the broadcasters, and they are required by law to make these payments, the money is just being left on the table.
I see your point. But besides broadcasting, there are other applications like physical mass reproduction on CDs that are used for advertising. I used to work for a company specialized in this and 90% of our customers were looking for PRO-free music. Just my 2 cents though.

Thanks, I didn’t know that. In that scenario I don’t know who would be responsible for the PRO money. At any rate, it would be nice to have the ability to opt in or out of PRO registration.
