UK Leaving the EU, VAT Implications

The UK officially left the European Union on 31st January 2020, however transitional arrangements came into force. These arrangements cease and new trading rules commence on the 1st January 2021. Unfortunately these new rules were only agreed on the 24th December and so full details are still unclear. The issue of VAT is complicated with new rules being applied. As we do not want to break any financial rules we have decided to TEMPORARILY SUSPEND online software sales to countries outside of the UK.

Hopefully the new VAT rules will be made clear in the coming days/weeks and we can resume selling again to our friends in Europe.

AMD Processor Issues

Over the last couple of months we have been made aware, by a small number of customers, that they were encountering problems installing SonoBat software onto their laptop computer. These problems only occurred on laptops with AMD processors. After some research it was discovered that several other graphics based software programs, utilising National Instruments LabView software, were also experiencing similar issues and a ‘fix’ has been published on the LabView support page. Based on this advice we have created a pdf guide on how to implement the settings changes on Windows 10 to allow LabView and hence SonoBat to install.
