Eurozone consumers will be hit by new tax rules in 2015

EU map with starsThe following announcement does not affect consumers in the UK and outside the Eurozone.

Consumers in France, Germany, Holland, Ireland and other Eurozone countries may not be able to purchase patterns as digital downloads from small British based websites such as Stitching Cards when new EU tax regulations come in to force on 1 January 2015.

In our opinion the new regulations for selling electronic services to other EU countries are too time consuming and costly for a small business to implement. Many will just stop trading with the Eurozone. Stitching Cards are not happy about the situation and will look for an alternative solution. However, at the moment nothing is decided.

The problems have been explained very fully on the Ysolda blog (link will open in a new tab/window):
