Hi @Diabolique, as an Australian company we comply with the Australian Tax Laws. As this question does not relate to the membership terms update, please contact us via support if you have any other questions relating to tax.
It’s related to the membership terms because “Membership Terms and Conditions” are checked by my Tax Office when I am audited. If you are saying in the MToC that I’m a seller here and I should collect VAT (about 25% in my country) then I want to send a VAT invoice for each buyer/company who will buy my theme so they will get VAT return in own country and save 25%.
Also if I will buy something on your website from an author, let’s say from Ireland, then I want to receive VAT invoice too.
Anyway your agreement between members is not clear for Tax Offices. You should add a clear information to the “Membership Terms and Conditions” who is collecting value added tax from clients here.
Other authors have the same problems – http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/eu-tax-specialist-says-i-need-to-pay-vat/85095
Hi Diabolique, thank you for clarifying and for your feedback, I’ll make sure this is passed on to the right people.
Thanks for this info !!!!!
I would like to see a checklist of items reviewers will check with details.
For example, I had an item soft rejected because I used a free font from a free font site once allowed by GR but no longer allowed today. We need a list of free font sites (or specific font licenses) supported by GR.
Another example, a guy had an image rejected for being too sexy. We need specifics on what that means. (This idea is currently under review by staff. I mention it here, just because it is a good example of the level of detail missing in the Terms and Conditions and various author instruction docs.)
