2015 Place Of Supply Tax Legislation – Please Read!
Thanks to some ridiculously unhelpful new EU legislation (which seems particularly targeted at small business owners, and moreover independent music retailers!) we’ve been offline for a month, busy implementing technical changes to ensure we fall within the boundaries of the law with regards to VAT.
What does this mean for you, the end customer? It means that if you are an EU customer (UK customers this does not apply to you!), we will have to charge you your home country’s VAT rate if you are purchasing digital goods (i.e music downloads). To help make things a little easier and ensure price transparency as much as possible, we’ve popped a handy widget down the bottom of the website that will convert the price of all affected goods for you automatically. Just enter your country in the drop-down box and the store will do the rest. Please note all prices are still displayed in Pound Sterling.
In addition to the above, all customers upon checkout may be asked to confirm their country of purchase/billing info to ensure the correct VAT rate has been applied.
We apologise for the inconvenience! There is a petition to reverse this legislation here – we encourage all customers to sign it!
