I have been so busy with real life these last few months, that I had just learned our very talented Kontakt Sound Design Company Prodyon, has shut it’s doors due to a new worldwide merchant law which took effect at the beginning of 2015. Prodyon’s Announcement:
as some of you may already know, there is a new official VAT regulation coming from the European Union. In short it means: “Pay your VAT (Taxes) in the country your customer ordered your product from!”. And this is no joke – unfortunately. This new regulation is valid from on the 1st of January 2015.
What does this mean for Prodyon? Prodyon is a one-man company founded and operated by me, a small businessman. I simply can´t be bothered to register in 26 (!) countries for VAT, nor am i a qualified “data processor” like bigger multinational companies. I don’t have the manpower, time and technical possibilities to validate customer´s location and all other required things upon checkout. Besides this the effort is simply too giant for me, and i wouldn´t have time for anything else then.
Until all these issues have been sorted (hopefully) i have to shut down Prodyon AGAIN in terms of selling products. The site will be left online and i will continue to give support, answer e-mails and so on. But you won´t be able to buy anything from me starting on the 1st of January 2015.
This is very sad news! I want to sincerely thank Dennis Lenz, the CEO and creator of Prodyon, for providing quality Kontakt content , and hope that he has the chance to open Prodyon once again in the foreseeable future. I have also just learned that one of Prodyon’s Masterpiece Sample Library is absolutely free!
