As of December 1, 2019, Barbadian VAT applies to the sale of cross-border services from non-resident providers purchased online by Barbadian customers.  

As a result of new legislation, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (“AWS”) is required to charge VAT on services purchased online for consumption and utilization by Barbadian customers and, accordingly, VAT at 17.5% will be added to AWS charges for taxable services.  AWS will issue a tax compliant invoice to reflect the VAT charges, which will also will be available in the AWS Billing Console. All VAT collected from Barbadian customers will be paid to the Barbadian 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.
