how does it work when I sell my own domain name through SquadHelp?
I read your terms of service here: https://www.squadhelp.com/Terms-Of-Service
As far as I understand, SquadHelp is not the reseller of the seller owned domains, but SquadHelp is only a marketplace, right? The TOS says that the domain name buyer and the domain name seller will be in direct contract.
But then the domain name seller must issue a proper tax invoice to the buyer upon request, right? Or will SquadHelp issue the tax invoices always to the buyers?
But if SquadHelp is not a reseller, just a marketplace, then how can Squadhelp issue a tax invoice after a domain name purchase?
I am confused about this. I am just a seller, I have never bought a domain name on SquadHelp. I see the checkout form, the customer must fill in the name, address, and then will SquadHelp use that information to send a tax invoice to the buyer?
But the checkout form is incomplete. For example if the buyer is a business registered in the European Union, then that business will require a VAT invoice. But on the checkout form there is no field to enter the company name and EU VAT number. EU businesses need their EU VAT number displayed on the VAT invoice. It doesn’t matter that SquadHelp is a US company, if the buyer is located in the EU, then a VAT invoice is needed.
And if the buyer is located in the EU, and the buyer has no valid EU VAT number, then SquadHelp or the seller might have to charge EU VAT on top of the price. However there is no field on the checkout form to ask for and to validate EU VAT number, and in my seller account I see no option to charge EU VAT on top of the sale price. Which is a problem, because if the seller account is actually a business registered in the EU with a VAT number, then in some cases VAT must be charged to EU buyers, on top of the sale price.
But I still don’t know if SquadHelp is actually a reseller of our domains, or just a marketplace?
I think the best would be if SquadHelp would become the reseller in all cases. Squadhelp would buy the domain name from the seller, then immediately resell it to the end customers. In this case, the domain name seller would invoice SquadHelp, and Squadhelp would invoice the buyers, and Squadhelp would collect and remit any international taxes applicable, like sales tax or value added tax, on top of the sale price. And Squadhelp would verify EU VAT numbers upon checkout and send a proper tax/VAT invoice to every buyer.
Currently I don’t understand if I sell a domain name through SquadHelp, then should I issue a tax invoice to Squadhelp, or a tax invoice to the buyer? In a lot of countries, if a company or a sole trader sells a domain name, then that company or sole trader must issue a tax invoice to the buyer, displaying the tax rate used etc.
