I just spoke with my accountant, there are only two options for us either Envato will add to their ToS that this is not a direct transaction (and this is the better option) the other one is that Envato should provide all of the info about the client.
P.S When I said that the Envato says this is a direct transaction she laughed pretty hard…
One more thing because I am not sure if I understand correctly. We are the direst seller to the customer (lol) so we will have to create an invoice for every customer instead of one invoice to Envato at the end of the month?
Hi, I don’t understand and to be honest I am super confused and scared whats coming. I am from Poland and I pay taxes here. The way my accountant manages taxes is that “I sell licenses to Envato” so every month I prepare an invoice, pay income tax and everything is fine. I am a VAT payer but IT services (selling licenses for software etc.) are not subjected to VAT (from Poland and as I presume from any country in EU) when you sell them to Australia (the VAT is 0%). So everything I buy as an expense for my company 23% VAT (VAT in Poland) of that comes back to me.
How is this suppose to work right now? I will have to check from which country every buyer is and add VAT accordingly on the invoice? What about the VAT that comes back to me?
The only solution that work and wont kill the authors and our accountants is to add the VAT based on the country the author is sitting in + transfer the VAT to authors account and let them deal with the IRS etc.
Otherwise we cannot really deal with the VAT ourselves.
P.S If I understand correctly Envato will pay the VAT for us? And what about if I have other clients besides Envato, some of the VAT will be payed by me and some by Envato?
This is crazy
For me this should be considered as support + update for lets say 12 months if you want updates or support after that, just renew the license.
Hi, I did a clean install of Yosemite yesterday and it is awesome. I love the new system font etc. the only thing everyone will need to get used to is the gradient iOS7 like icons, but they are not bad at least now it is consistent.
The only thing I don’t get is the iCloud Drive it is spouse to work like Dropbox but where is the sync status? How to share something with a link to for example a client?
There should be a huge price increase for multipurpose themes because authors are forced to make them to earn decent money, this is sick. They should cost $100 or even $100+ Then niche themes can compete otherwise it is hopeless.
We cannot lower the price of the themes ourselves so the competition is healthy on the marketplace but we can add 100 premium plugins and the price still is the same… sick!
