Why am I being charged tax for my Wasabi Storage Account? 


  • United States - Taxes are assessed based on the local and state requirements.  If a customer is tax-exempt, you can submit the exemption certificate to support@wasabi.com. 

  • European Union & the UK - All transactions in these countries are subject to VAT tax at country-specific rates.  If the customer is a VAT-registered business and provides their VAT ID, the reverse charge mechanism applies, no VAT is included on the invoice, and customers are responsible for declaring and remitting VAT themselves.   

  • If the customer is an individual or has not provided a valid VAT registration ID, the transaction is considered a B2C transaction and VAT will be applied to the invoice.      

  • Canada - All transactions with Canadian customers are subject to GST/HST and PST where applicable (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, British Columbia, Quebec). 

  • Japan - All transactions with Japanese customers are subject to 10% JCT rate

  • If you would like to add your VAT ID to your account, please log into the Wasabi Management Console, select the link for the Billing Tab, and then navigate to the Billing Preferences section, and enter your VAT Number under the “Customer Invoice” section.
