You may be aware, although many internet marketers are not, that the rules for selling to consumers & non-VAT registered business in the EU are changing.
It was assumed that the changes in the rules were only for broadcasting and telecommunications but it also covers everybody that sells digitally. It can be the sale of an e-book, online courses or video education tools. Coaches that set up selling courses on “how to ….” are just as affected as Netflix selling a downloadable film.
The new rules depend on how you sell, if there is any human intervention in the sale, who you sell too and where they are based.
The new rules can be summarised in the following infographic.
A blog post was created to explain in detail how internet marketers will be affected by the new rules, but it ended up being nearly five pages long and rather complicated.
