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.

As such, AWS accounts for GST/HST and QST at the applicable rates on certain sales of AWS services provided to customers. 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. All GST/HST and QST collected from Canadian customers will be paid to the appropriate tax authority.

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 recover GST/HST, or QST paid on services provided by AWS. More information regarding this tax recovery can be found at the Canada Revenue Agency site and the Revenu Québec site.
