I'm looking for a precise answer to a question about OVI publishing, but haven't found it yet: can individual companies publish on OVI store?
Individual companies (with a country-specific tax ID or whatever it is called): Yes.
Individual persons without a company: No.
This could cause problems as self-employed people in many countries don't get a tax number unless they earn over a certain amount. In some countries the amount is quite low, but in others the amount is very high, and many one-person companies wouldn't necessarily have a VAT number.
yes they can, at the TAX/VAT ID field, just enter VAT-EXEMPT
thanks for your fast reply. Probably, there were some misunderstandings with my Ovi registration process, since I actually own an individual company (the Italian "Partita IVA"), but my registration was rejected. Which is the best way to solve this kind of situations?
the setting up of the Italian VAT for in/for English Partita I.V.A.
Is a lot easier the UK VAT.
IMHO you need to format as a European VAT you have a number being with your country code U.k. GBxxxxxxx see Wikipedia.
The Value added tax identification number (VATIN) is an identifier used in the European Union Value Added Tax for taxation purposes..
This could be VERY USEFUL if the Application checkers read this siteCode:So your Italy code seems "Country Local name Abbreviation Country code Format" "Italy Partita IVA P.IVA IT 11 digits"
Re-apply with the correct code AND email address matching the company website.
Is it possible to use the Social Security Number as TAX ID for US developers?
I am interested in selling content using the Ovi Store, and was wondering if you found an answer to your question.
I am living in the UK. As a new business without a VAT registration number, can I start selling content using the Ovi Store? If so, do I use my national insurance number in place of the VAT registration number?
If you do get a chance, your response would be greatly appreciated!
In the UK you register at HMRC as self employed company and ask for a Tax Form. The HMRC then send you a brown Tax form with a tax number in the top right this is 10 digits and represents you tax ID for the company.
Oh you can have a VAT ID just means you have to be limited under companies act
and you collect VAT
I will get in contact with HMRC.
I am an individual developer from Romania. I don't have a company, nor i have a TAX ID. What can i do to publish some applications on OVI?
Thread EU Tax codes
Then you need a company name as a sole trader (self registration) with Romania tax authority a support website (where you market and support your app) and support email address with same domain (your company name) European Credit Card for the 50 Euros payment.
You CANNOT publish Audio/Video/Ringtones/content with this account, needs premium account $1Million dollar insurance
Your applications must be signed approx $300 dollars per time.
Developing and selling and app is an investment which for an sole trader/individual may *NOT* recover your costs. Support for individuals will not take place before june 2010 after the store is open for a year.
