If you buy products in Europe, you have to pay VAT and "traders" from the USA also need a corresponding VAT number. The company Catnip Games does not currently have this. MMORPG fans Shroud of the Avatar are annoyed at how much work this situation is causing developers.
Again and again the question arises what the tax situation looks like when a player from Europe in-game items in the MMORPG Shroud of the Avatar buys. Because in that case VAT has to be paid. But the company Catnip-Games does not have a corresponding VAT number.
Complex tax situations
Chris Spears, CEO of developer studio Catnip Games, explains the situation as follows: "The topic came up earlier and the answer is the same. We filled in the relevant documents with a VAT MOSS" One Stop Shop "in the EU. We did it earlier this year and the process is still going on, but I went ahead as soon as possible to make sure we were compliant, to clarify the situation for those who are actually playing the game: a person who constantly creating accounts through a Tor browser, trying to cause problems with this issue, but we've done what we can and we're just waiting for the ID right now. "
Fans of the MMORPG Shroud of the Avatar (buy now for € 26.95) are somewhat annoyed that a small company like Catnip Games has to make such an effort to comply with tax law in Europe. According to the opinion, the time that would have to be spent on this could actually be invested much better in the development of the game.
If you are currently buying items in Europe from the MMORPG Shroud of the Avatar, you should be careful until the situation with the taxes has been completely resolved. How this was regulated before, when SotA was still being developed by Portalarium, is unclear. Here Chris Spears said: "I don't know and I can't speak for Portalarium, Travian, or Black Sun."
