Just what small business need, being affected by VAT legislation brought in to curb multi national companies practices.
 
New EU VAT rules from 1 January 2015

If you sell digital services over the internet (i.e. PDF downloadable ebook or content) then you need to be made aware of the changes coming up in January. It is controversial to say the least, and I'm not going to write a full essay here, but this does include travel publishers, and I know a lot of bloggers who sell digital products online. 

As you can imagine, this has put a spanner in the works with regard to the project that I've been working on, but as always with these laws, they're loopholes, one being manually sending the PDF file via email, is not classed as a digital service according to the HMRC(!)  

Alternatively, you can just block anyone from the EU, and in my case, anyone outside of the UK, within the EU from purchasing digital services. You can do this by blocking the IP address. 

I'm far from an expert on this new EU law, so I SERIOUSLY think you should look into this if you sell digital products online.

Jean-Marc, Unfortunately, I don't see Travelodge installing fridges in their rooms. At least the room price at Travelodges includes TV viewing, towels and a kettle to make hot drinks, these are considered extras at Tune hotels.
