I don’t think we need an answer from Envato, as many have posted evidence of how the law explains VAT for marketplaces and that for Envato’s model it’s clear they are the sellers. If there are any issues down the line for authors with authorities, we’d be covered in my opinion – which is why I think so many of the big earners here are relatively quiet on the matter, as they’ve already consulted their advisers and feel confident with their position.

Why not South Africa, it’s pretty similar weather and scenery to Australia, and it’s really cheap if you earning dollars.

No doubt your feedback has been overwhelmingly against the change we’ve made here.
Knowing what to listen to and what not to listen to is the art in design.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep ;) I don’t think authors here are hard to please, or overly critical.. the new look just doesn’t look right and numerous people have said the same, so I hope staff doesn’t take it personal.. comparing to other maketplaces and creative showcase sites, this new look is not an improvement, and we know Envato can do better. I think the main issue is lack of contrast if you’re going for pure white, you need a little bit more contrast with the grey and those outlines. Second key area is the fonts, its a few points too big.

What is going to happen with the VAT for sales before 2015? Because we were NOT the sellers until 2 month ago! Please answer this question!

Why you should pay past VAT? for what?

Law does not operate retroactively.

Untill now (end 2014) according to TOS all authors were not described as sellers and always received “commision”, so if you payed all other (income) tax required by your country – you operated fully legally.

+1 Also when someone decides to start a website to sell items globally, then they should have made sure they were complying to international VAT laws from the beginning.

To me, it’s almost a given that Envato would be responsible for past VAT, just based on them taking responsibility for future VAT.

100% agree
