the sellers (envato or authors) have to validate buyers VAT# and given buyers company information against (be)for(e) each time an invoice will be accounted to the buyer
I could go to http://orf.at/stories/orfonimpressum and take their VAT#ID – WHO IS CHECKING THIS??? – responsible is the seller (invoice creator/sender)
hmmm …. I’ve sent my registration for becoming an Envato Studio Service Provider months ago without any feedback till now???
if you want to use the theme for a single project (private or commercial) as your mentioned insurance website the Regular License would be enough
it’s not needed – envato is our only business partner and located outside EU and if Envato pays VAT to whomever is not relevant, you don’t have to account VAT to envato because
note: thats my opinion and based on my accountant’s info and my insight
@emanuelezenoni you get paid from Envato on another account, right?
envato will pay you if you send an invoice or not – and to have sheet/evidence why you receive money from anyone it’s a good idea to generate an invoice for this transfer (I do this with Amazon and Google too)
only for your accounting – no need to send the invoice (in the real world) to envato
they mentioned purchases from “EU authors” but obviously the seller is Envato and so VAT will be charged from EU buyers
IMO there is no difference between EU authors or non-EU authors
btw. not every EU author is commited to charge VAT (non-VAT registered companies, privates below reportable incomings)
worst month ever, since my last 5 years, even if I have some addional sales this month extrapolated onto the last 20 days :/
superduper unanswered questions
billyf said“For EU authors,” ... this implies that we are the sellers – but if we’re really the sellers
Collis said it in his marketplace blog post here.For EU authors, we’ll be managing the EU VAT compliance (i.e. collection, record keeping, invoicing, remittance, and so on) for sales made to non-business buyers through Envato Market.But I don’t know whether Envato has started collecting VAT from non-business buyers in EU.
- EU author without VAT# (that’s possible and legal) are not allowed to collect and state VAT from their EU-customers – so the endprices and invoices should be different to EU authors with VAT#
so why Collis is “speaking” of “EU authors”????
