Republic of Belarus Information

As of 1 December 2019, DigitalOcean charges a 20% Goods and Services Tax (GST) to customers with a tax location in the Republic of Belarus.

This complies with Belarus’s requirements for non-resident companies like DigitalOcean. If you are a non-business customer of DigitalOcean in Belarus, your invoice includes this charge but you do not need to take any additional actions.

If your business has a registered VAT ID, you can add it to your DigitalOcean account to remove tax charges from your invoice. If your business is registered for VAT but you do not add your VAT ID to your account, your invoice includes VAT charges.

Frequently Asked Questions about Taxes

How is my tax location determined?

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.

How can I change my tax location?

You can update your account address and view your account's tax location and rate at any time on the **Billing** page's **Settings** tab. If you've set your account address correctly but your account's tax location is not what you expect, contact support for help.

Why is my invoice in USD? Can I get an invoice in another currency?

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.
