On 1 July 2018, Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL (“AWS Europe”), our Luxembourg-based AWS entity, started to sell our services. AWS Europe provides all AWS cloud services for your accounts based in these countries and territories in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Please read the AWS Europe FAQs for more detail.


AWS Europe is an entity established in Luxembourg which began selling our services on 1 July 2018. In addition to its headquarters (“HQ”) in Luxembourg, AWS Europe also has branches (or “ فرع ” in Arabic) in several countries in EMEA, including Kuwait: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Kuwait, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. The branches are not subsidiaries (or “الشركة التابعة ” in Arabic): they are the same legal entity as AWS Europe HQ in Luxembourg. In Kuwait, the branch has the relevant resources to be a registered establishment and is, therefore, treated as a local vendor.
Please note that the AWS Europe Kuwaiti Branch started selling our services to customers in Kuwait on 1 October 2021.
If you have accounts located in Kuwait, the AWS Europe Kuwaiti Branch will issue invoices for all service charges incurred from 1 October 2021. Please visit the Tax Settings page of the AWS Billing Console and confirm or update your details, including your Business Legal Address for all of your account(s).
How does AWS determine if your account located in Kuwait?

At the moment of invoicing, AWS determines the location of each individual account, based on certain information, including your TRN, your Billing address and your Contact address. The result of AWS’ determination is shown as the “Tax Address” on the Tax Settings page of each account.

If you have a consolidated billing family, please note that each account is assessed individually: linked accounts do not inherit the Tax Address or the TRN of the payer account. The payer account can view the Tax Address of all their linked accounts on their own Tax Settings page.
