Hey my Loves 💜,
As you know Brexit is now a reality and as a European business, I will need to register my business also in the UK and pay taxes in the UK if I want to keep selling to UK based Planet Prudence fans.
Along with the customs mess Belgium has agreed upon since shortly, I am facing a lot of legal documents having to get sorted out and a whole new way of working.
There’s a huge bump in the road waiting for me with taxes, Brexit and registering my business in another country, extra taxes for UK orders, shipping solutions having to be made possible, my prints paper being taken out of range, but i want you to know I’ll actively search for solutions and will take all the measurements that are necessary to make it all possible.
In order for me to be able to work efficiently I need to update my website as well, as that can be tied to courier’s dashboards, and have discovered the lack of user friendliness of my webshop. I have way too little payment options and the shop runs way too slow. And obviously I will need to up my game to still make all of this possible.
I’ll be offering two wallpapers next month in the $5 tier as a thank you and will make a limited print every week in the hopes I can increase my income a bit to fund for the solutions. I’ll need to up my print prices a bit in 2021 BUT the prints will now also be Fine Art prints printed on super high quality paper. I swear, the paper even feels expensive 🤦🏼♀️😂
I feel comfortable knowing I have you as my Patrons who are making sure Planet Prudence keeps existing and I see these challenges as a way of contrast for the sunshine that will come after. I am going to spend next week sorting all of this out as everything is closed right now, even my bookkeeping’s office and in the mean time I’m going to sell what I can, pray for the best and pray for 2020 to please stop the challenges to come right now 🥲 (also I’m convincing myself that this is NOT a sign I need to stop.. right? Anyone? 🥺🙈)
As for you: I want you to keep enjoying my work and I hope you’ll continue to feel the love I have for you. Thank you for everything 💜
I love you! 💜
