Amazon will raise tariffs for Spanish users after the new digital tax

Amazon will increase fees for Spanish companies using its platform by 3% from April after the government imposed a digital tax, a corporate document seen by Reuters showed it.

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed the so-called Google tax, which Spain has begun to charge on the revenues of large digital companies from On 21 January it would affect the users of its services. Countries around the world are examining ways to tax global tech companies on revenues generated in their economies in the absence of a broader agreement on how to address their growing role in business and commerce.

The spokesperson added that Amazon supports a global approach rather than the taxes imposed by individual countries. Amazon’s document confirmed an earlier report from Spanish online media El Confidencial.

Amazon announced a similar move in France after the government also passed a “Google tax”.
