Ok, so first of all, if you decide to go down that route:giancarlo wrote:Ok but the accountant and the lawyer basically said the same.
Here final words from them:
- the only things we need to do on our side is to specify in our market that the price for b2b could be different. Basically there is no law which enforces the same price both for the b2b and the b2c shop. Anyway we need to say "it could be different". Basically we already did it in the forum, but from a transparency point of view it is better if we place the same disclaimer also in our webshope (we'll do it asap).
you shouldn't say "it COULD be different", you need to state it IS different
for customers inside the EU.
In addition to that you either MUST remove the price tag completely or
advertise all final GROSS prices for EVERY single EU country.
This is EU law.
GROSS price means INCLUDING VAT, no matter if you're a B2b or B2C customer. ( the VAT rate is defined by the customers country )
The current situation IS ILLEGAL - as you said yourself, you MUST have a final GROSS prices in your webshop - a hint in a forum is not an excuse for NOT DOING THIS.
This is a joke, right ?giancarlo wrote: - if you want to know the final price of a b2b transaction just send an email before buying
You NEED to advertise final GROSS prices like your lawyer said.
You want professional customers from the EU to "send an email to get info on the final pricing" ?
Generally this is correct,giancarlo wrote: Basically there is no law which enforces the same price both for the b2b and the b2c shop.
but atm there is only ONE AA shop - and no other company in the world has different shops ( or prices ) for B2B and B2C.
I am a consumer - a professional consumer.giancarlo wrote: - infact it is true that for the end consumer we are forced to comunicate the FINAL gross price, but all european rights used for the "consumer" don't apply to "companies". Basically the lawyer said that "companies" are a sort of "informed" subject, so it is enough to specify that the price will be different.
I am a self employed person, a freelancer, NOT a company, by definition of my country's laws ( in this case Germany ).
What you do is juridical hair splitting.
Honestly, if you want to sell your stuff only to amateurs, go on...
I will not buy anything ever again from a company with this kind of mindset.
Your plugins are good, but not the be all and end all of things.
And, last but not least, no matter how you quote your accountant - my accountant told me what you do IS ILLEGAL.
