As of 1 July 2020, DigitalOcean charges a 15% Value Added Tax (VAT) to customers with a tax location in Saudi Arabia.
This complies with Saudi Arabia’s VAT Law H1439/4/14.
If your business has a registered VAT ID, you can add it to your DigitalOcean account on the Billing page. When you add your business’s VAT ID to your DigitalOcean account, your invoice will not include the VAT charge and you will be subject to the reverse charge. If your business is registered for VAT but 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.
