This year’s contribution:
Cohhe saidas for me I’m invoicing Amazon, Google and Envato … respectively with appropriate tax/vat notes and total sum calculations for my accounting – I never send them to them but that’s not that determining
Did you write an invoice to Envato? Sure you didn’t so did you sold something or is it a loan?
My question: if i own a company who don’t pay VAT, inside of country or outside, doesn’t matter (some UE countries allow that business organization), why Envato will charge VAT? I mean who can check if each market authors business are eligible for VAT or not?
What should happen by law is that Envato will bill everyone in the EU for VAT but if a buyer has a VAT number then they can add to the checkout process and it will reduce their bill by the VAT.Now how Envato does this is anyones guess, I am guessing it will tie in with their checkout system they have been talking about
but this will only work if Envato is the seller, not the author – because as already mentioned the VAT can be part of the total sum of an invoice or not – depending on both, seller and buyer
does anyone have a full screenshot of the old earnings page?
maybe it could be rebuilt a bit for own purposes, unfortunatelly some of the data are not part (or just incomplete) of the API results
I wouldn’t name it paid updates
what about give buyers the possibility to download purchased item for 6 month after (last) purchase, so they get always the current version within this period, there won’t be any bugs from initial purchase at the last purchase of the item.
The current license model must not be changed
if an Item gets some, form buyerside interesting, updates buyer could buy a new 6 month timeframe to download the item, this can happen even two years after the initial purchase or last purchase of download timeframe.
for example I’ve updated this month one of my items after two years of no updates – there won’t be any new buyers, but item holders get an updated version
another issue is to mention, that there’re are not only $60 Wordpress-Themes or $15 HTML Templates but much lower priced CodeCanyon PHP Scripts
canoode saidso in this case there’s no difference between NON-EU business buyer and NON-EU private person?
themac saidYou are wrong here, If we are talking about e-services (products and services distributed electronically).
if an EU author with VAT-ID sells to a NON-EU private buyer the seller’s VAT has to be accounted
for services too?
