to everyone in the world who earns online(taken from Naniiebim's IB blog to spread the word~ more artists need to know about this proposed law from the EU)to everyone in the world who earns online by BastardPrince
****On Jan 1, 2015 new EU VAT (consumer tax) regulations mean that any business selling digital services/products to EU customers must charge tax at the local rate for the purchaser’s country. A USA business must determine & verify the purchaser’s country, store their personal details for 10 years, & establish, charge and remit to that country’s authorities the appropriate VAT. There is no minimum threshold to exclude micro businesses. Not only is the procedure, bureaucracy & changes to website payment processing too onerous & expensive for some businesses to absorb while remaining viable, but the regulations are inadequately detailed, poorly explained & may be applied differently in separate EU countries.****

ALL ARTISTS ONLINE READ THIS- NOW. PLEASE SHARE.EDIT: Confused as hell about all this? Don't understand big scary business words and laws and shit? (Don't worry, me neither) READ THIS. It's the best way to explain EXACTLY what is going on right now if you don't understand business. If you sell certain types of art online this concerns YOU (nomatter where you live). Even if the art you sell through a marketplace is only worth $1 and it ends up being bought by someone in the EU.ALL ARTISTS ONLINE READ THIS- NOW. PLEASE SHARE. by imagni
It -seriously- concerns me why very few people on DA are not freaking out about the new EU VAT law that is starting on Jan 1st. I'm an artist, not particularly biz minded but I do make my living from selling my art as a freelancer/sole trader of creative services and goods. Many of you here will do so too. Some of you sell prints through DA. Some of you sell PSD templates. Stock. Photography liscences. Brushes. Textures. Webcomics on your websites or through plat
EU VAT! If you do commissions, please read!*Sigh* Here we go again. I swear, the government, not only of your own countries, but of others as well, are determined to shut down anyone doing anything small time, or make it so hard for them, they might shut down anyhow. Gotta love all of these legislation that are so easy for big time companies to deal with, but seem to be aimed at killing independent sellers of any kind or small businesses.EU VAT! If you do commissions, please read! by Genisay
Here are the facts that have been gathered at any rate. I don't like the sound of it one bit, and have already signed the petition against it. Dang it all, some time being able to even get the measly commissions I do is some times the only way I manage to get through parts of my life and be able to freaking eat!

It -seriously- concerns me why very few people on DA are not freaking out about the new EU VAT law that is starting on Jan 1st. I'm an artist, not particularly biz minded but I do make my living from selling my art as a freelancer/sole trader of creative services and goods. Many of you here will do so too. Some of you sell prints through DA. Some of you sell PSD templates. Stock. Photography liscences. Brushes. Textures. Webcomics on your websites or through platforms. Website advertising. Craft patterns. Digital goods. (not that it matters because its rolling out to physical goods in 2017).
What is VATMOSS? Only the biggest scariest headache of your life if you plan on getting funding for your art online now. This isn't something that is 'maybe' happening. This is something THAT IS HAPPENING FROM 1st JANUARY. Please read about the noise on Twitter and find out how it will effect you directly as a buyer and seller.
"We are the music makers,|
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems. "
