I have just run into another issue with the changes – the number of invoices. Right now I am sending one invoice a month to my accountant. After the changes I will have to send one per each sale which is few hundred a month. That means my accountants fee will rise few hundred $ I don’t see any way to avoid this…
From my point of view. One thing is surely clear. STOP searching Google for these kinds of answers. It’s like buyers telling us how that they’re 16 year old kid can make a better product just by downloading some tutorials. Go to a specialist.
Who is doing that? First thing I did was call my accountant, and she said that this invoice is a joke (you don’t have to be an expert to figure this out). Because envato is multi-milion company they can do whatever they feel like which is resembled in the Envato Marketplace Platform blog post (which is sad and funny at the same time).
Right now they can change what ever they like and there is nothing we can do. Thats it I am not participating in this anymore, I’m going to wait for the official release of the new author vs Envato agreement and hope for the best.
The thing that angers me the most (and makes me sick) is the whole talk about the “community” this is so fake. I owe Envato a lot and I have been supportive for years, but they owe me/us a lot also because without the authors there is no Envato. For some time they are forgetting about that more and more, sad.
Sorry but I still don’t get where it says that I earn $40.60 because this is the amount I should pay taxes for not $46.40
Hi, I do not get something, take a look at this My item price is $58 and I earn 70% of it which is $40.60 so why on earth my invoice says $46.40 and why the Authors fee is $5.80? And why I cannot download an invoice from Envato for the authors fee?
Why authors fee doesn’t say $17.40?
WHY, WHY, WHY WHY?!
In addition I think we should be thankful Envato takes care of this EU-VAT stuff. Because otherwise we would have to deal with MOSS in every single invoice. So I don’t know if it’s clever to prejudge Envato, because finally they’re taking a lot of work off our hands.
Is this a joke?
What about photodune authors who have few thousands sales a month? They will have to print all their invoices and take it to accountant?
I have spoken with my accountant and she has one question, when will we see a new written agreement with all those changes reflected there in formal language? Because currently she has now idea how Envato can pay VAT for us in other countries, and what proof do we have that the VAT is paid for us?
A little off topic: I am stunned how many Polish authors sell here without showing their flag badge
