Eve Market Deals EVE Online Updates

Updated Taxes and Accounting Skills

Both Eve Market Deals website and Android application now takes into consideration increased taxes when selling directly to a buy order after recent tax relief from CCP. For more information, please see Restructuring Taxes After Relief.

Furthermore, capsuleers can now select their Accounting Skills, from Level I to Level V, or not trained; and taxes are reduced accordingly by your trained Account Skill.

Simply select your accounting skills, and Eve Market Deals will calculate taxes and potential profit based on those skills. The base tax is 8% and reduced by 11% per Account Skill level.

For example, assuming Accounting Skills Level V, taxes will be withheld at 3.6%.

However, if Accounting Skills are not trained, taxes withheld will be 8%, reducing the potential profit by about 9.3M ISK.

Lastly, Eve Market Deals assumes the best tax rate when searching for the best deals. By default, the best tax was increased from 2.5% to 3.6%. Only potential deals that are profitable with the new higher tax are considered.

Eve Market Deals Updates

Faster Updates

The majority of feedback I receive is that Eve Market Deals (EMD) takes too long to update. Well, good news capsuleer, it’s a lot faster now!

First, Digital Ocean, which currently hosts EMD, introduced new Premium Droplets. Specifically, they now support NVMe. This new type of disk decreased the time it takes to download Eve Online market data and perform analysis from about 30 to 40 minutes to about 20 minutes.

Second, up until recently, EMD would download Eve Online market data, and then perform analysis, repeating again, and again. Because of the new disk, EMD can download new market data while simultaneously analyzing the previous data. This ultimately means faster and more frequent updates to market data.

Furthermore, recent updates to EMD include additional information about average and best buy or sell prices by item. My intention is to make this information useful for potential Station / Region trading by identifying when the spread between buy and sell orders is sufficiently large enough to profit. A new post will go into more detail.
