On January 1st 2015, new rules regarding VAT on digital download purchases came into force in the European Union. To summarise what’s a very complex issue, customers who purchase digital downloads from a website must pay VAT at the rate governed by the country they’re located in.
Complying with the new law is very difficult for a small website like Smoothbeatsonly and represents a big technical and administrative challenge. I’m currently working a solution.
Until the work is complete, and to comply with the new EU law, I’ve been forced to remove the option for EU customers to make purchases from the site. I’m very sorry about this.
If you have any specific questions or concerns, please let me know.
