If there was ever any doubt that the country is run by idiots ( was there ever any doubt? ) the changes to the VAT laws solidly removed that doubt.
One of my readers emailed me late last night (Thanks Nigel) to let me know about an update to the law changes. Following a huge amount of lobbying by small business owners the threshold appears to have been put back in place. Any small business that falls below the threshold will not have to charge VAT to customers within the UK. That is a start but as you need to prove that you have only sold to UK residents you still need to register for VAT and keep all the records that were necessary with the original law changes!
I have been doing some reading this morning and found an informative post on the subject. FIND IT HERE
Lots of info on there and in particular a comment from one of her readers that may help my situation. I did a lot of reading once I knew about the law changes and as I interpreted it my products were affected. However the way I deliver my products may NOT be affected. Lots of grey areas but hopefully I can get some sort of clarification.
As things stand my Clickbank pages are set up ready to go. Are YOU ready for Jan 1st?
