Dear BrickLink members,

Last week we announced our Brexit marketplace solution, which is due for release
on Tuesday, May 18. This is considered a major deployment and will require site
downtime.

https://www.bricklink.com/message.asp?ID=1269534

To avoid having two scheduled downtimes within a short period, we have consolidated
the regularly scheduled monthly maintenance downtime with the Brexit release.
This extended downtime is scheduled for Tuesday from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EDT (BrickLink
time).

In case the Brexit deployment is further delayed, we will still carry out the
monthly maintenance at 1:00 PM, but the total downtime will last only one hour
instead of 90 minutes.

Thanks for your patience,

The BrickLink Team

Normally the downtime is 1 AM, is PM a typo or is it changed (at least this time)

Questions:

- can you please provide an example of the VAT Invoice?
Should be as short as possible to save Ink, paper (weight);
Standard size for all orders, without a list of order details.

- is 20% Sales Tax calculated over order amount only, or also over shippingcosts
and other fees?

- will other countries (like Norway..) follow in the near future, do you have
some kind of a plan that lets us see which countries will follow for Sales Tax
charged by Bricklink to the Buyer?


Hope to get answers, before I loose these 1.5 hours working time tomorrow??
