As of 1 October 2022, DigitalOcean charges a 12% Value Added Tax (VAT) to customers with a tax location in The Republic of Kazakhstan.
To comply with Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Finance amendment to the Tax Code, non-resident suppliers of digital services must register and collect VAT from customers not registered for VAT purposes in Kazakhstan.
If you are a customer in Kazakhstan with a valid VAT ID, add it to your DigitalOcean account on the Billing page. When you do so, your invoice will not include tax charges. If you do not add your VAT ID to your account, your invoice will include the VAT charge.
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.
