VAT

  • The price of each resource sold by Tes Resources is VAT inclusive. Your royalties are calculated on the net price of your content – the price before VAT. The percentage of VAT/GST charged depends on the location of the individual customer purchasing the resource (their VAT jurisdiction).

    For example, the sale of a £6 Resource to a UK customer is comprised of £5 net and £1 VAT. Tes will pay the £1 VAT to the UK Tax Authorities. Your royalties are calculated on the £5 net. EU countries have different VAT rates and so the VAT amount contained within the £6 selling price will change. This will change the net amount and will therefore change the amount of your royalties.

  • When a resource is sold from Tes’ Resources website to a third party, Tes is the seller in that sale and so charges VAT/GST (as appropriate) to the third-party customer and remits that VAT/GST to the appropriate Tax Authority.

    It is your responsibility to decide whether you need to register for UK VAT in respect of your royalty income. It is also your responsibility to file your own VAT returns and pay the VAT due to HMRC.

    If you are based in the UK and are VAT registered, it is your responsibility to issue a tax invoice to Tes Education Resources limited for the royalty income paid into your bank account. You need to notify Tes if you are already registered for VAT, become registered or deregister.
