Therefore at the time of the purchase and subsequent accrual of compensation in favour of the registered user, the user shall permit the issue of a receipt for accrued compensations through which RocketSharing or the companies under its control shall issue the payment order and comply with any other corresponding legal obligations (payment of tax withholdings and issue of the relevant tax withholding certificate).
In the case of cashbacks accrued in favour of UK tax residents, whether they are individuals who conduct an economic activity (i.e. they are registered as self-employed workers) or companies, the registered user shall be obliged to notify this circumstance or any modifications thereto in a timely manner, given that these individuals shall be solely responsible for meeting all the corresponding fiscal obligations and for issuing the relevant invoices incurring any indirect taxes that may apply. These payments may be subject to tax withholding at the corresponding rate in accordance with the nature of the commercial activity and tax formalities for administration. If this may occur, the user conducts their business as a self-employed professional or businessperson, he/she expressly authorises RocketSharing and the companies under its control to issue on the user’s behalf, during the entire collaboration period, the invoices that document the cashback paid to the registered user. For this purpose, the user will open a specific numbered series of invoices (when applicable) exclusively for issuing these invoices which shall be preceded by Rocket.
This invoice or “self-invoice” shall be made available on the user’s personal web page and he/she shall be the only person responsible for printing it and using it for all corresponding tax obligations (especially regular and annual tax declarations) and for his/her own records.
Specific PAYE business tax and its formalities will be of responsibility of who is the taxpayer according to the law.
18. DEADLINE FOR THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE CASHBACK
