Display British Pound (£) instead of US Dollars ($)

How can I change the Billing section under My Account to display how much I owe or is due in Great British Pounds? It gets hard to keep track of how much money I’m spending when always having to convert these values, especially when it tells me that I have been deducted $#.## from my British bank account.

While not definitive, if you set your address on the profile tab DO seems to localise your tax requirements. While I’m not able to tell because AUD still uses a $, you might be able to test it out and see if a conversion takes place.

My guess is that it is much easier for a US based company to charge everyone in USD, but I may be wrong.

To whom it may concern,
I would like to ask if there is a possibility of changing the currency on the invoices in order to make it easier to match deductions from the bank account with the invoices and therefore make my life a bit easier for the taxational year.

I am in Australia, for not be able to have the billing preference set to AUD for tax purposes is madness for a company that trading all over the world. AWS could be the option here folks!
