Since Europe has started demanding VAT on online sales, other countries have followed suit. I don't have an exhaustive list, but I recently received an email from Valve saying that Norway and Russia are now doing the same (and that Valve would handle the taxes.) My question is, is itch.io staying up to date with all of this?
VAT everywhere, not just Europe
This is a good question. I also want to know if there's a way to dissable VAT for the Collected by itch.io mode? I'm in the UK and I'm not VAT registered; I'm not required to be (because I'm nowhere near the income threshold), so I don't have to charge VAT when I sell something.
^ Or, is VAT required because the sale is from itch.io, so they are VAT registered and required to charge VAT?
When I start earning £83,000+ a year, then I'll happily register for VAT as required, but I don't want to.
