WHY is this site so great? Well....many of you whom are SELLING digital patterns would have already heard of the New Vat Laws that the Euopean Union are introducing in 2015.
Basically....in a Nut Shell, if you sell any digital products, including patterns and e-books, to a consumer in the EU, according to this new law, you must then collect VAT for that sale at the rate of their resident country, and then report and pay the VAT to that country.
Well.....here is one solution for those of us that are affected by these new laws. Patterns to Print!
Samantha has been SUPER BUSY setting up her new Patterns to Print store and I have to admit that she has done an outstanding job in an extremly short time!
BUT....What this means is that there is now a solution for PDF pattern sellers wanting to sell in the EU!
Not only does Samantha have bag Patterns BUT you can find clothes and quilt patterns too!
Samantha is taking care of all the official VAT business side of things so that all “international” pattern sellers are able to sell their patterns to EU citizens without all the new law headaches!
PLUS...There will be a whole swag of other patterns from other designers including Emmaline Bags, Projects by Jane, Imagine Gnats, Clover & Violet! Many more will be added over the coming months too, so if you are a PDF pattern seller who is feeling concerned about the new laws and wish to keep selling to the EU without worrying about collecting taxes etc, do get in touch with Samantha for more details!
Of course, ANYONE can shop at Samantha's new store, no matter where you are in the world! You can even choose from a number of different currencies such as GBP, CAD or USD so DO stop by and check it out!
PLUS....To celebrate the Grand Opening, you can get 20% off all patterns (including MINE!) using the code HELLO15 until December 31st! It's a single use per customer code but can be used on multiple products! WOOHOO!
