As of July 1, 2017, Service Tax, VAT and certain other Cesses and Levies in India were replaced with Goods and Services Tax ("GST"). GST now applies on all sales of cloud services made by Amazon Internet Services Pty. Ltd ("AISPL") to customers in India.

As AISPL is based in the state of Delhi, it will charge SGST (9%) and CGST (9%) to customers also located in Delhi. It will charge IGST (18%) to customers based in other states.

If you are using our services for business purposes and registered for Indian GST, to enable you to obtain tax credit and receive correct tax invoices for the GST we charge you, please update your payer and each linked account with your business's GSTIN and the address to which the GSTIN is registered, in the Tax Settings page here.

If you make purchases on AWS Marketplace, as Amazon Web Services, Inc, which is based in the United States and registered for GST in India as a non-resident OIDAR supplier, is billing you on behalf of the ISV or Partner, it will collect IGST at 18% unless you update your tax settings page with your GSTIN as per the above.

Although Amazon Web Service, Inc ("AWS") is established in the United States, the GST regulations contain a special provision for suppliers of Online Information and Database Access or Retrieval Services ("OIDAR") which required AWS to register for GST and to charge IGST (18%) on sales to non-business customers.

As such, if you are using AWS's services for business purposes and registered for Indian GST, to ensure that you are not charged with IGST, you must update your payer and each linked account with your business's GSTIN and the address to which the GSTIN is registered in the Tax Settings page here.

If you are not using AWS's services for business purposes, please still review your billing and contact addresses to ensure that your address are spelled correctly. It is especially important that your state is spelled correctly or you have the correct abbreviation.

Finally, if you make purchases on AWS Marketplace, although AWS is billing you on behalf of the ISV or Partner, it will collect IGST at 18% unless you update your tax settings page with your GSTIN as per the above.
