When you see that message on iTunes when try to buy or listen some tracks..
That happens sometimes - and the solution is surely not too obvious.
They say - may take place up to 25% of (random) tracks.

I had the same issue so I called Apple support. They were pretty stumped at first but after 30mins they managed to fix it.

Just head into Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

Your phone will restart, you'll  have to re-enter your WiFi passwords but it should work fine after that.

Temporary invoicing suspension
We are very sorry - but have to ask you wait a week to issue invoices.

We just going to obtain VAT ID (required by UK laws with current turnover) and therefore - some calculation scheme will be changed (partners will pay us without VAT deduction but we will deduct it when you do not provide (European or British) VAT ID in the invoice)

So, total royalty amount to receive will not be changed for clients, who not an EU citizen - but EU clients (who provide VAT ID) will receive little bit more royalty - but will be responsible to deal with VAT.

We need some time to implement updated invoicing documents. Thanks for your patience.
