Russia GST Tax Collection since January 1, 2017

Please note that since January 1, 2017, Russia tax law changes apply for non-resident sellers of electronic services or digitally downloadable products/services. In order to be compliant with these legal requirements, our payment vendor (SWREG / Digital River) will start to collect Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 18% for all sales to shoppers in Russia. This will apply to both your maintenance renewal or license purchases.

SWREG has started collecting GST this month on sales to Russia.

QUOTE:
SWREG, Inc. is required to collect VAT tax since we offices within the European Union. We collect the VAT rate of each individual country then remit the collected tax to the proper tax authority.

If the customer inputs a valid VAT Exempt Number on the order form the tax will be removed from the order total.
