As of 1 August 2015, DigitalOcean charges Value Added Tax (VAT) to customers with a tax location in the European Union.
This applies to all non-business European Union customers. VAT collected from customers in the European Union is paid to the tax authority of the appropriate EU member state.
You can access your VAT charges on your monthly invoice by visiting your account’s Billing Page. DigitalOcean is registered for EU VAT under the Electronically Supplied Services (ESS) simplified VAT registration regime.
If you are a registered business established inside of the EU, you may enter your VAT ID on your Billing page. Upon verifying your VAT number, VAT will not be applied to future monthly invoices. However, registered business may be required to manually account for this tax. If you do not see the VAT ID field on your billing page and you are an EU resident, open a support ticket.
The following table lists the VAT rates as of 1 January 2015 that may be charged to European Union customers. Prices listed on the DigitalOcean website do not include applicable VAT charges.
|France & Monaco||20%|
The following (member) states or (independent) regions of member states are excluded from VAT charges.
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.
