How we are dealing with VAT on digital products, within the EU

VAT on Digital Products within the EU

You may have read about the changes to the way that VAT (Value Added Tax) is applied to digital products (including knitting and crochet patterns) for sales within the EU. From 1 January 2015, VAT will be paid in the customer's country, rather than than in the country supplying the product (the UK for The Yarn Cafe). Further details are available here.

To ensure that we can still supply digital patterns to all customers (whether or not they are in the EU), we have decided to voluntarily register for VAT.

What does this mean to customers?
There will be no change of service (with patterns available for all customers). The price for digital patterns will be inclusive of VAT.
