From the 1st of January 2015, we are forced to charge VAT on digital items at our customer's countries rates, if our customer is located in the EU. As Hurt Records is located in the EU, we must charge VAT at our customer's rate and not our own.
It is our responsibility to make sure that we comply fully with tax laws wherever we operate and although most of the work that we are undergoing will not necessarily be seen by you we are obliged to let you know that with every purchase we are required to note the following data from you;
1) Our customer's country when purchasing.
2) Our customer's IP address when purchasing to make sure the location mentioned is a match to the 'country' presented in your 'billing information'.
These two pieces of information are stipulated https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/revenue-and-customs-brief-46-2014-vat-rule-change-and-the-vat-mini-one-stop-shop-additional-guidance/revenue-and-customs-brief-46-2014-vat-rule-change-and-the-vat-mini-one-stop-shop-additional-guidance#section-2-digital-services
We hope that you are having a great day!
Thanks for your support!
