Zazzle.co.uk TAX

Recommended Posts

I have an account with Zazzle.co.uk (but i think US company) and upload designs which are placed on products that people can buy. Once sold, I get a royalty on the product, eg 10% from a £20 tshirt.


I am want to withdraw funds but I need to complete a form that mentions a tax treaty between the US and UK. I can choose to not complete this section BUT will lose 30% for tax.


Or I can claim of Tax Treaty Benefits, but the info from them is vague. I've attached the form that I need to complete (I think?).


Does anyone know where I can find more info about this tax treaty??


Any help appreciated.

are you registered as self employed with HMRC? if so you will have a code that you can enter into the relevnat both. It was known as your TURN ( trader unique reference number) and if you trade abroad you can apply for a pseudo TURN vat number or EORTHI

as for special rates, you need to look that up.

Also are your customers US based or elsewhwere? Chances are you have no association with the US so they are just being lazy ( and possibly unfairly profiting) by applying this demand.

I also note they have a eu office in Eire so that makes me really wonder about whether their demands and tax witholding are right.

    • Update email today, can someone let me know if you think I need to respond....   My understanding is that this complaint is about the mis-sale of Short Term Lending . Please tell me if I’ve missed something, or if you have anything to add at this point.   My role as an adjudicator is to give an independent opinion on the complaint. This means I’ll talk to you and the business, weigh up the facts of what’s happened, and then suggest a fair way to resolve the situation.   In most cases, we find a solution at this stage. This might be agreeing how the business should put things right – or sometimes that the business has already acted in a reasonable way. But if either you or the business disagree with what I say, we can review the complaint and tell you our final decision.   Thanks .
    • Not sure I am in the right place to ask this, but here goes .....    My son has just vavcated a property being managed through a local estate agency.  He is currently in the process of accessing his deposit to be returned.  It is held in a system whereby they give him a code and then it is released back.   When the inspection to the property was done they issued a list of 'defects' they wished us to put right.  We have fully cleaned the house as requested.  We have re-painted as requested.   They then advised there were 2 stains to the bedroom carpet that had to be cleaned.  Also the living room carpet has to be cleaned.  All marks on walls had to be removed or repainted. We fully painted the house (bar the back bedroom which was used for storage only).  Two stains on the bedroom carpet cleaned.  Front room carpet cleaned. This was done last weekend and handed the keys back.  Inspection was due to be Tuesday, then moved to Wednesday.   Now they are saying that what we have done isnt to the expected standard.  They are now saying they are going to get quotes for decorators to come in and new carpets in the living room.  All this to be taken from the deposit.  As I am guarantor on the property, I have advised them I dont have an open cheque book for this.  It is currently in the Landlords hands.   They advise the landlord has given us ample time to rectify the situation.  We have only had the keys for 4 days out of the last fortnight.   Would anyone be able to advise where I go from here?  My son doesnt want me to do anything that will impede his deposit being returned.  But as I see it, there wont be any deposit left!   Thanks in advance guys.
    • Hi Slick, thank you.    I've had a response from Harland's saying:   We can confirm you are currently in a 12 month contract, you currently have 2 months remaining including your missed April installment. Cancelling the direct debit does not cancel the membership and is not adequate notice to cancel the membership, due to your direct debit being cancelled your April payment was missed and a charge has been applied per your Terms and Conditions, which you agreed to upon joining the club. Please follow this link to make an online card payment and to reinstate the direct debit (then the link).

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here
