As of 1 January 2020, DigitalOcean charges a 8% Goods and Services Tax (GST) to customers with a tax location in Singapore.
This complies with Singapore’s requirements for non-resident companies like DigitalOcean.
If your business has a registered GST ID, you can add it to your DigitalOcean account on the Billing page. When you add your business’s GST ID to your DigitalOcean account, your invoice will not include tax charges and you will be subject to the reverse charge mechanism (RCM). If your business is registered for GST but you do not add your GST ID to your account, your invoice will include the 8% GST 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.
