Notice of Change in Tax Rule in New Zealand
Pursuant to the Amendment of Goods and Services Tax Act 1985 released by the New Zealand Government, beginning 1 October 2018, Alibaba Cloud will be required to charge New Zealand Goods and Services Tax (“New Zealand GST”) at the rate of 15% on certain electronic services provided to individual (non-business) customers located in New Zealand.
Alibaba Cloud will not be required to charge New Zealand GST on services provided to New Zealand business customers. To determine whether a customer is a business customer, the New Zealand tax authority requires Alibaba Cloud to collect from the customer its New Zealand GST Number.
To confirm that you are a New Zealand business customer, please enter your 9 digits ABN in each of your Alibaba Cloud accounts.
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.
Please go to Billing Management, then enter your GST Number at "Tax ID" page
