Dear Sir / Madam,
Pursuant to the Tax and Superannuation Laws Amendment (2016 Measures No. 1) Act 2016 released by the Australian Government, beginning 1 July 2017, Alibaba Cloud will be required to charge Australian Goods and Services Tax (“Australian GST”) at the rate of 10% on certain electronic services provided to individual (non-business) customers located in Australia.
Alibaba Cloud will not be required to charge Australian GST on services provided to Australian business customers. To determine whether a customer is a business customer, the Australian tax authority requires Alibaba Cloud to collect from the customer its Australian Business Number (“ABN”). To confirm that you are an Australian business customer, please enter your 11 digits ABN in each of your Alibaba Cloud accounts, or provide it to us via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to reach out to your Alibaba Cloud business representative or our after sales support (through opening a support ticket) with any questions relating hereto.
