Amazon AWS 开始代收加拿大的货劳税

Amazon 的 email 通知:

如果在用CloudFront的时候,有选择加拿大的数据中心,那就会被收取这个"货劳税",我们通常称之为 GST,或者 HST ,QST,因为各个省份有所差异,名称也就有所不同,税率也略有不同。

我的 AWS 账单部分,可以看到 CloudFront 收费,GST就是加拿大的税, US Sales Tax 就是美国的税,VAT 就是欧盟的增值税,CT 是日本的消费税。因为 AWS 的服务在全球各地都有的数据中心,有服务器,通常就是你使用了在哪里的数据中心,就会被应用于该地的税收。

2017年开始,AWS 加拿大的货劳税开始收取了。
