Although Amazon Web Services, Inc. ("AWS") is established in the United States, it is registered for Canadian Goods and Services Tax (“GST”)/Harmonized Sales Tax (“HST”) and Quebec Sales Tax (“QST”) purposes as a nonresident taxpayer.

In general terms, AWS accounts for GST/HST and QST at the rates applicable in the Canadian Province where the customer is located, on sales of AWS services provided to customers out of the AWS Canada Region. AWS’s online pricing does not include applicable taxes. Taxes charged will be shown on your commercial invoice in addition to a separately issued tax compliant invoice, which will also appear in your billing console.

To ensure the correct tax rate is applied please ensure that your address is properly reflected on your billing address and contact address pages.

If you are using AWS services for business purposes and are a GST/HST/QST registrant, you may be entitled to credit GST/HST, or QST paid on services provided by AWS in your respective return. More information regarding this tax recovery can be found at the Canada Revenue Agency site and the Revenu Québec site.
