Announcement: 2016 New Zealand GST Changes

Hello,

Starting October 1, 2016, e-books sold to customers in New Zealand will be subject to a 15% New Zealand Goods and Services Tax (GST).  This change will affect the prices New Zealand customers see on the Amazon.com and Amazon.com.au websites.

As a result, from October 1, 2016, Amazon will begin collecting and remitting GST for sales to customers in New Zealand.  When calculating royalties for sales to customers in New Zealand, we will use the tax-exclusive list prices you provide to us for Amazon.com and Amazon.com.au.

Best regards,
