New EU Digital Tax Laws

Is everyone aware of the new EU digital tax (VAT) laws that are being implemented on 1st January, 2015? These new laws affect everyone, not just EU residents; and there are no threshold (income) exemptions. It is going to effectively wipe out small business PDF sales to Europe, unless sellers want to register with the 28 countries involved and then pay individual VAT payments to each. Sheesh the paperwork alone makes me want to leave the planet.

A large number of sellers are rethinking sales to Europe, and some are completely closing down the digital downloads section of their shops.

Any thoughts?

  1. I haven’t heard of this! I’ll have to investigate because I love buying patterns from Australian designers. And pdf is really the most convenient.
