The look of our receipt/invoice is changing
This is just a quick notice to let you know that the design of our invoices will be changing from 1 January 2015. We know that many of you are savvy and cautious when it comes to online payments so we just wanted you to know that this change is planned.
The invoice is not a visual improvement on what we had before but we needed to change them to show the breakdown of VAT paid.
We now have to charge VAT for EU customers but the prices are staying the same for everyone
We, like everyone else, just want life to be simple. However, from the beginning of 2015 the EU is bringing in a particularly complicated way of calculating and charging tax on digital products. From then, 1 January 2015, we will have to pay VAT on all payments from EU customers who are outside the UK.
We have decided that we will keep our pricing plan the same for everyone. Although this tax will take up to 25% of some payments it is simpler and fairer to keep the price the same.
The new invoices will show how much, if any, VAT has been paid from your payment to us. For around 90% of our customers this will be zero. However, the total amount will be the same as before.
Our company’s legal name is Rokesmith Ltd
Woodworking Masterclasses is a trading name of Rokesmith Ltd. Don’t worry, this is just our small family-owned business, we haven’t been taken over or sold. It was just a business decision early on to have the main legal name of the business something other than ‘Woodworking Masterclasses’. It means that if we decide to create a new branch of the business in the future we can do so without setting up a whole new business.
The name Rokesmith Ltd sometimes appears on emails, invoices and on this site. We just thought we would take the opportunity to explain how it relates to Woodworking Masterclasses.
