I've been reading up on VAT as it looks like this year we may need to register.
We are in the UK, and sell digital goods on our website (one piece of software).
As I understand it, if someone buys our software outside the EU we don't need to charge VAT.
We use Paypal for all transactions. Paypal transactions are sort of annonymous in the way that we can't accurately define the country of origin of the payment. If we have a box saying choose your country, is this sufficient? I'm guessing not, how do other businesses deal with this?
Also, am I allowed to sell the software at different prices? For example, a US resident would be buying the software at $50, wheras the UK citizen would be buying it at say $40 + $10 VAT. Is this discriminatory in any way?
