New VAT law and etsy.

Good news for EU sellers - etsy will be dealing with the tax for you!
Still no joy for sellers outside the EU though.

It does seem rather a half-solution from Etsy.

But really they had no choice - HMRC made it pretty clear they would be coming after them for the vat.

One also has to wonder if the fact Etsy will be going public has anything to do with this u-turn? And indeed what that will mean for sellers once shareholders rather than sellers become their main focus?
