Google starts charging 20% VAT on its services in Ukraine

Google users in Ukraine have received a letter from the company about the price rise of its services. This is related to the recently adopted and signed so-called “Tax on Facebook” law, initiated by Danylo Hetmantsev, Chairman of the Committee on Finance, Taxation, and Customs Policy. AIN.UA explains what will change.

  • In June 2021, the President signed law No. 1525-IX, which introduces 20% VAT on online services provided to Ukrainian users by non-resident companies. According to new rules imposed by this law, such electronic services are subject to VAT (20%).
  • To comply with these rules, Google starts to charge 20% VAT on its services in Ukraine. This increase applies only to services provided to individuals. Nothing changes for companies and entrepreneurs with business accounts:
