I am in the UK.
I am signing up to be an Android developer. I am going to have some In App Purchases in my program. This means I need a Merchant Account with them.
We have a limited company which has been earning nothing. It is a pain to keep going so we have discussed if we do or don't shut it down. However, any money earned at the moment we want to put through the business.
However, I want to set up this Google Merchant account for the long term, covering all possible decisions we make.
So I am faced with the option of a personal or business account in the Android Developer sign up. Ideally I would like to say a personal account for Android developer, but then put the money through the business accounts. Is that allowed?
An extra question: Last year I signed up to the Microsoft Store, and received about £20 from them after about an £8 fee in May, for the entire year. They said they would be collecting VAT for me, but they say no taxes have been taken off.
Can I put that through the business?
Does the fact they have taken no tax off mean there have been no EU customers?
This is all very complicated.
I do not want to spend loads to ask an accountant, as this will just eat up the pennies I have received.
