Hey folks, so I've had some time to think about this whole VAT situation, and it seems the best case scenario is to keep the Patreon running but turn everything over to a "pay what you want" model, with all works being publicly visible. Pledges will essentially be "good faith" support or donations, if you like, towards keeping the comic going. Apparently this gets us around the obligations of VAT that Patreon is not addressing. Also, this means that if you were supporting for a specific reward, you may wish to adjust your pledges which is completely understandable, however bare in mind, I won't be taking anything away, just making everything available to everyone till this mess is sorted out. I just don't see any other real solution besides scrapping the whole thing.
