CRAZY NEW EU VAT REGULATIONS - Supply of Digital Products 22 Jan 2015
Regret that due to crazy European Union inspired new VAT regulations effective from January 2015 that Datalite UK Ltd trading as 'DAYBORN' is no longer able to offer the 'Advance Copy' option to our customers. This is because this product is classified as a digital product, and complicated and virtually impossible (if not actually impossible) to implement EU VAT rules come into force. This bureaucractic nightmare would mean multi EU country VAT returns, privacy issues (storing customer details contrary to data protection acts), impossible customer location verification etc. It is with regret that it is simpler and more profitable simply to discontinue offering the Advance Copy product. A note has been posted on our 'Options' page:- Sorry, but our advance copy service as a digital product falls under complex and extremely bureaucratic new European Union VAT laws introduced January 2015. As a result it is no longer possible to offer this product to EU (Non UK customers). Furthermore though we are already UK VAT registered, due to EU discrimination laws, we are additionally unable to offer this product to UK, or even to Outside EU customers.
DELIVERY COURIER CITYLINK - Gone Into Administration 27 Dec 2014
On Christmas Eve we heard the sad news that the courier company CityLink had gone into administration. We at Datalite UK Ltd are a customer of CityLink and will likely need to make alternative courier arrangements. However, our thoughts are primarily with the staff of CityLink and the devastation this news would have brought to them and their families, particularly poignant as the news was announced on Christmas Eve. CityLink invariably provided us with a good service, and we wish all the best for the Isle of Wight depot staff and drivers. Regarding our customers, luckily we did not make any CityLink despatches on Christmas Eve - this has always been our company's policy to avoid packages being stored in depot for an extended period over the Christmas holiday. Therefore none of our customers parcels should be caught in limbo. Alternative couriers will be sought and used for order placed during the Christmas period.
