Howard Jones Lots of new trad folk to hear (Bandcamp) (17) RE: Lots of new trad folk to hear (Bandcamp) 24 May 18

The rules on VAT on digital sales (including but not restricted to music downloads) changed in 2015. From then on digital supplies had to be taxed at the rate in the customer's country, rather than the supplier's. This was to stop big companies like Amazon operating from countries with very low VAT rates, but caused a huge admin problem for small-scale business who otherwise would not have to worry about VAT as they were below the UK threshold for registering for VAT. Google VATMOSS (or VATMESS) if you want your brain to hurt. There is now a 10k minimum which helps small businesses, but not when selling through a big platform such as Bandcamp. The rules may change again after Brexit. It's a mess.
