    Can anybody share official Unity3d company details that should be put on the invoice for asset store payouts?

    Invoice for what, unity sends you the monthly payout data by email, and will deposit the money for you by wire or paypal.
    You dont have to invoice unity for money owed.

    If you are legally reporting this income there should be a proper invoice included for every transaction.
    Normally in such cases a reverse invoice is issued.

    I just get an email from Unity's account on Paypal.
    You dont need to do anything.

    As Tzan said, the PayPal email sent from Unity for payouts are to be used for tax purposes. Just handle it as a once a month invoice; you don't need an invoice for every product sold.

    Yes, that what I was sure is enough. Though my accountant says just transaction alone is not enough.
    Maybe it's just weird rules in Europe.
    For example, some other "Resellers" are making reverse invoices in such cases.

    Yeah that's odd. It should be enough. Technically only one transaction is taking place. You aren't paid per purchase. You accrue a total balance and at the end of the month it then results with one final payout. As if you are paid for a service you provided to Unity.
    Therefore you only need one invoice. If the money was instantaneous then that would be different.

    Exactly. I need to declare just one invoice per month for the payout. But it should have Unity's company legal info along with their VAT number. Since the Unity doesn't create such reverse invoice for vendors I have to make it myself but again I need the company details.
    I think not a single EU accountant will take just a PayPal transaction for reporting.

    This is mainly a community site. None of us can really talk for the business side of Unity. Consider emailing support or the asset store? You could also get in touch with your local Unity rep.

    Emailed weeks ago. Getting bounced between numerous emails without an exact answer.

    Hi LerLur,
    I have the exact same problem as you. Did you ever get a response from Unity about this issue?
    Thanks
