if an EU author with VAT-ID sells to a NON-EU private buyer the seller’s VAT has to be accounted
You are wrong here, If we are talking about e-services (products and services distributed electronically).
so in this case there’s no difference between NON-EU business buyer and NON-EU private person?

for services too?

there are some differences:

EU business (authors) can be liable to pay/declare VAT or not, they are VAT-committed if they reach a specific amount of total revenue or if they decide towards the finance to declare VAT -> soeither the EU business (author) is VAT subjected, or not

the other side is the buyer side, and AGAIN if buyer is an EU business (buyer) he/she can be VAT subjected or not (see above)

only VAT subjected EU businesses have an official VAT-ID (UID)

current status:

if an EU author with VAT-ID sells to an EU buyer with VAT-ID the VAT don’t have to be accounted (0%) (Reverse charge) – if author knows and checked buyers UID

if an EU author with VAT-ID sells to an EU (private or business) buyer without VAT-ID the seller’s VAT has to be accounted

if an EU author with VAT-ID sells to a (private or business) buyer with or without VAT-ID in author’s country the seller’s VAT has to be accounted

if an EU author with VAT-ID sells to a NON-EU business buyer (b2b) the VAT don’t have to be accounted (0%) (Payments for services rendered are not taxable at national level. Reverse Charge too)

if an EU author with VAT-ID sells to a NON-EU private buyer the seller’s VAT has to be accounted

if an EU (private or business) author without VAT-ID sells anywhere inside or outside EU VAT doesn’t has to be part on their invoices and the price doesn’t contain any VAT

I hope I haven’t forgotten anything from EU athor’s side ??

What is the average freelance rate for most? $20 – $50 per hour? What is the average price of themes here $20 – $50? This is where the critical problem is, if we guarantee our time for each customer, and spend too much time, we’re not really getting anywhere :D Point is, we’re not earning enough to offer guarantees on support, so we’ll need to somehow earn more for mandatory support to work, but again this should be optional for the author ;) You just can’t mix micro stock selling with human resources (we’re not for sale).
don’t forget, that some of the CodeCanyon items are below $8, where author gets ~$4 but having much higher hourly rates (depending on where you’re living) than you’ve writen (including possible VAT%)

hi,

does anybody know a shiftplanner like shiftjuggler, papershift or easypep as an item/standalone version to install it on my own server (PHP/my(pg)sql)?

otherwise I have to build it completely by myself and I know this would be a bit time-consuming :confused:

thx in advance

From a buyers view: buyers buy from envato, nowhere are other information for buyers than that envato is selling the items
otherwise (if authors are selling) buyer have to know under which circumstances they buy the items including detailed company and VAT information from the seller and if the price contains the VAT or not – these are essential data for buyers and have to be fulfilled for direct selling

For European authors – I think there is no VAT problem – you should only pay taxes from income. Am I right?
additional to income taxes you have to pay/account/state VAT for each incoming/outgoing invoice if you’re owner of an official VAT# and you have handle each outgoing invoice different regarding who and where the buyer is living

Ah, ok, In principle, the buyer pays VAT, yes? As I understand the problem here is that we, as a matter of fact not sell to buyers, Envato sells. I would treat it as a service where they pay for our digital goods which they can sell further.

I may be wrong but to me it looks like Envato wanted to win and pay less tax, after all Envato sells, we do not even know our (their) clients.

I have a feeling that Pandora’s box was opened.
maybe the buyer has to pay VAT, it depends on where’s the buyer living and where’s the author living and what kind of “contract partners” are (business/private/VAT less business) – more can be found here
