tea party and EU VAT

While I usually play a mild mannered polymer clay peep on the internet, in real life I tend to be a little bit ok, maybe more that a little bit of a “hot head” when I get wound up and tend to curse like a sailor. Add in the fact that I’ve been sick and in a grumpy mood anyway…

tea party and VAT EU

A few weeks ago I came across a post about the EU VAT. My first thought was that this sounds an awful lot like “taxation without representation”, which lead to a certain Boston Tea Party. My second thought was that there is no way in hell they are going to be able to enforce this in different countries. I, of course, signed the petition and starting reading more info on it and following along to see if any changes would be made. I’ve also been following discussions of what other sellers of tutorials were doing about it.

And while I’m not against paying taxes per se, we are talking about 28 different EU states with different tax rates…the accounting for a small individual seller would be considerable for a few pounds tax here and there. Not bloody likely!

If you purchase any of my polymer clay color recipe ebooks or tutorials, I’m sure you’re more interested in how I intend to handle it than my thoughts on the subject, so….

For my customers affected by the EU VAT:

I will be personally emailing you your color recipe ebooks and tutorials. (If there is human interaction – as in I personally email the files to you they are not subject to the tax)

And since I will be making no other changes, if one were to download the file before you receive it in mail…that is up to you. (I will never tell). What happens at Crafts by Chris, stays at Crafts by Chris.
