As of 1 September 2017, DigitalOcean charges a 10% Goods and Services Tax (GST) to customers with a tax location in Australia.
This tax is applied to cross-border supplies of digital products. The DigitalOcean Australian Tax Office Reference Number (ARN) is 300009359012. It is also listed on each invoice for customers who are taxed in Australia.
If you are registered for GST and need to provide an ABN number for an exemption, you can do so in the billing section of the control panel on the Billing Page. Visit the Australian Taxation Office website for more information about GST.
Your tax location is typically based on your account address, which is initially set to the payment address of your primary payment method when you sign up. In some locations, we are required by law to consider other account details, like other payment addresses or IP addresses.
You can update your account address and view your account's tax location and rate at any time on the billing page. If you've set your account address correctly but your account's tax location is not what you expect, contact support for help.
USD is the only currency we accept for payments, so all invoices are in USD. We cannot provide invoices in other currencies. Learn more about invoices.
