Hi,

yesterday I had a sale reversal on one of my item, but the price of Reversal of Author Fee doesn’t match with Author Fee for sale.

It is an Item sold for 4$

Earned Amount: 3,20$ Author Fee: – 0,40$

Sale reversal: -3,20$ Reversal of Author Fee: 0,44$

See the difference? Anyone has an Idea why?

Is Collis going to call every author to explain the situation? :D

Haha, I would also like to talk to him, but my English is poor and I’m not able to fully understand the conversation in English. :/

I’ve now talked to my accountant and if You (Envato) are a platform , what is something She couldn’t yet agree with and needs more time to explore and analyze it and if You have the right to take care of the VAT for my EU customers, then in my bussiness model I don’t need invoices on EU transactions for VAT tax (I’ll only need it in summary for income tax).

I do need only those invoices for non EU transactions where I need to declare the total sum of these transactions per month in my VAT form for financial office.

Like this example:

In February I’ll sell 1 item to Czech Republic where VAT is 21%. All other sold items are to non EU countries. So for VAT purposes I’ll only work with those items sold to non EU countries and don’t anyhow declare the item sold to EU country?

How will I prove, that for that 1 item sold to EU, the VAT is paid/declared by You?

Ahojte,

na markete je nas dost. Videl som uz kopu CZ/SK vlajocok pri profiloch. Mohli by sme sa nejak zdruzit a vzajomne si pomoct najst nejake riesenie v tejto novej situacii :)

Megosvk cenu ti urcia oni.
Dobry napad s tym zdruzenim sa! Vytvoril som FB skupinu pre SK / CZ autorov, pridajte sa.

Dobrý nápad s FB skupinou. Docela by me zajímalo, jak všichni hodláte nyní rešit fakturace, prototože já v tom mám desnej guláš a už jen ta predstava, že mám mesícne tisknout a trídit 300 doklad? od všech, kdo si neco koupí je pro me nocní murou :/

EDIT: omlouvám se za diakritiku, ale musel jsem nektere znaky nahradit, protoze to psalo otazniky.

I’m a VAT registered company and in my Country I need to declare income for VAT purposes every 3 months and Income for Income Tax in the end of the Year.

When I declare the VAT there are 3 collumns where the sums goes.

1. sold in my country 2. sold in EU 3. sold oustide of EU

I need to write the total sum of my income in that 3 months period and pay VAT of it. For the 2 and 3 the VAT was allways 0, but for the point 1 there needs to be VAT (21% in my Country).

My questin is, if You (Envato) are responsible for determining, collecting and remitting VAT for all Envato Market purchases by EU buyers what that exactly means for me?

That means, I’ll leave the 1 and 2 blank (no total sum, no VAT) and only declare the sum for 3?

I still don’t understand what is a point of these “Author2Buyer” invoices if you are responsible for VAT.

I think it is mainly for declaring your INCOME to pay Income Tax.

It depends on your total sales, check this:

@natman I didn’t see any announcement of this thread and the one from Collis in my author dashboard. I suggest You put it there in some red blinking rectangle, so there is nearly noone, who will miss these changes as they are really important.

Basically every author from Poland (and from many other EU countries) needs to have own company because people cannot sell regularly without company.
I don’t think that’s new, any ongoing action that leads to getting income requires registering company according to law. “definiuje dzialalnosc gospodarcza jako (...) wykonywana w sposób zorganizowany i ciagly”. So that’s not the issue here.

Yes of course but Envato cannot issue invoice with our company details, right? I don’t get point of authors invoices.

What with situation where you sold $100 item? You get the invoice for this where your income is $100? Not $70? (70%)

If I understand it right, it means that your total income from an item sold for $100 is $80 as Envato adds $20 to buyer as buyer fee. In your statement the PRICE column is your total income. Your expense is $10 as author fee you pay to Envato so in the end, they will send You $70.
