Australia Tax Information

Goods and Services Tax (GST)

On September 1, 2017, DigitalOcean began charging the Goods and Services Tax (GST), which is applied to cross-border supplies of digital products. This 10% GST is reflected on monthly invoices.

The DigitalOcean Australian Tax Office Reference Number (ARN) is 300009359012. It is also listed on each invoice for customers who are taxed in Australia.

If you are registered for GST and need to provide an ABN number for an exemption, you can do so in the billing section of the control panel on the Billing Page. Visit the Australian Taxation Office website for more information about GST.


How is my tax location determined?

Tax location is determined by the origin of the last credit card added. This is the location returned by DigitalOcean’s credit card processor for the given card (not the user entered location).

For PayPal users, tax location is determined by the location returned by PayPal for the last payment.

How can I change my tax location?

You can change your tax location by adding a payment card with a different location origin or by making a PayPal payment with an updated location.

Why is my invoice in USD? Can I get an invoice in another currency?

Because USD is currently the only currency we can accept for payments, all invoices are in USD. We cannot provide invoices in other currencies.
