I have been working hard on an online form builder solution since the past couple of months; which is also why I’ve been inactive on the forums lately :( The site is in public beta, and I would love to get some people here to try it out.

Currently, it has most of the basic features you’d expect from a form builder. I am planning to add payment gateway integration soon.

If you have any questions, I’d be glad to answer!

Yes, we don’t have to pay Service Tax, or Sales Tax. We, do, however, have to pay Income Tax?
Yes. Considering your earnings badge, I would suggest you to keep in touch with a tax consultant! ;)
Ironically, I was studying to become a tax accountant myself, before I dropped out and got myself into coding and stuff :P

This may require some experience working with well updated consultants, probably from a network of tax related professionals.

In the past 8 years, I came across 3 tax consultants (to pay Income and Service Tax) and none of them managed to advice / guide me the norms exactly and they are in the field for about 10 to 25 years! :D It may not be their fault but the changing nature of Govt’s polices could be difficult to grasp when it comes to international transactions and my fragmented source of incomes like freelance service and licensing revenues etc ;)

From first hand experience, the tax and accounting industry is far less organized than what it appears. The laws are complex, and change very often. The tax professionals aren’t very smart either. Most of the professionals in the field are grey-beards who know how to ‘deal’ with the taxman. On a practical level, laws and their interpretations matter far less than we think. Laws pertaining to software, and exports, are very different from tax laws for goods and services sold within India, and most of these professionals have little or no experience in matters relating to software exports. An accountant who specializes in this sector, and has client references, would be a better person to advise you, even if he has < 5 years of experience, over a 60-year-old guy who claims to knows all the tax commissioners in town :P

I believe operating out of a SEZ gives you immunity from paying income tax for the first five years. You might still have to pay MAT (at much lesser rates, though). Anybody tried this out?

Currently, Envato facilities distribution of plugins and scripts over its marketplaces. Once the transaction is done, Envato steps back. I would like to see Envato work on an environment for managing the apps as well.

As a developer, I should be able to easily update changes to my scripts, keep a changelog, and manage multiple scripts.

The users should be able to easily update their scripts (or revert back, in case of trouble), get more licenses (multiple licenses, dev license, et al) with a click, try out scripts on their site itself.

I would also like to see Envato facilitate subscription based licenses for certain scripts / apps.

Ah, home is where the heart is. I can understand your feelings. I am also moving out of the city I currently live in. I’ve been here for about 3 years, I’ve seen some really bad days.

I will be moving to another city soon, leaving behind memories of this place to make a fresh start :)

PS: I don’t have a car as well :(

It’s good to see changes happening around. When a company becomes big, it falls into the inevitable trap of sloth (“Why touch it when it’s working just fine?”). Good to see Envato not falling prey to this.

It’s hideous. The new theme is an eyesore.
