I’m from southern California and one of the reason why I usually avoid SF is that it’s too damn expensive. My recommendation is take lots of money cuz’ you’ll need it. Other than that you’ll enjoy other places such as Yosemite. Also, try and visit Sequoia and King Canyons National Park.

Here’s all you need to know, Visit California

I live in sunny southern California and occasionally I surf in some of the local beaches. I don’t do much of it as I’m usually busy with family life and work :)

You’ve been designing and developing themes primarily centered around children for years now. What was/is your inspiration for continuing to focus on this niche?

guys what about PAYWITHTWEET ?? anyone used this ad method ?? t

Yeah, I’m curious about this too. I know from experience when I’ve been asked to tweet in order to download a free file I usually do but some times I don’t and I guess it just depends on my mood that day :P so this “PayWithTweet” might hurt your conversion as opposed if it was just free.

Would love to have more data on how effective this is. Anyone?

Why anyone at this stage would be hoping to change Envato’s mind or wait to see if things work out to benefit authors I think is a waste of time. Honestly, how long have you waited for a clear response on things? Months! How clear are they. They are not! Did they already implement the things you are contesting? Yes they have! Will they change their minds? Nope it’s their business plan already put in to action so far.

It’s sad to see the entire community up in arm about this and I know it sucks but at some point you just have to shrug it off, have a plan to cope with the changes, and just move on creating great items!

How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb!

Just come across an image which tried to explain if the new VAT rules affect you and one of the questions is: “do you only sell your e-services through a third party platform or marketplace”.

If you select yes, it takes you to “These rule changes don’t apply to you”., so basically Envato are doing what they have to by law and collect the VAT themselves.

It was created by the UK tax authority so is pretty much what you should follow if you have any doubts on any of the new rules.

Thanks for sharing this! :)

True, but I wonder how long will it take for EU buyers to realize they can use a VPN software/service to fake their location to not pay tax. It’s really simple actually.

Also, many authors are expecting Envato to pay those past years of taxes. That won’t happen, if authors earning 50%-70% can’t afford to pay, lets say 20% (average EU tax) of previous years earnings; how come Envato earning 30%-50% could? Plus, Envato has to pay the fees for the transactions, and to cover all the operational costs etc…

Seems like there’s a lot of information on the internet about this new tax scheme. However, it doesn’t say what the EU would do if foreign companies don’t comply. I mean, what could they do anyway?! You can’t just legislate for foreign territories.

If the law goes into effect January 01, 2015 why does Envato have to pay for past years? I got to look up this law and read up on it.

This is all bad for business. 2015 is going to be a very interesting year.
