Tax Issues

American Customers: W-9 form or W-8BEN form

American government agencies and educational organizations request us to fill the W-9 Form or W-8BEN Form. Since Aspose is an Australian company, we do not have Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) or Employer Identification Number (EIN). Instead Aspose can supply a W-8BEN-E form which is used in place of the W-9 form for foreign entities. To request our W-8BEN-E form please contact our sales staff.

European Customers: VAT

European customers sometimes asks for our VAT number. Since Aspose is an Australian company, we do not have a VAT number.

Australian Customers: GST

Since Aspose is an Australian company, we need to collect GST for each order purchased by any Australian customer. The GST inclusive price for all Australian customers is the public retailing price plus 10%. Our purchase system automatically adds 10% to your total when you are at the final steps to check out and GST is present on the tax invoice that is sent to you with an order. We are happy to provide the GST inclusive price for your orders when you request a quote as well.

Our ABN is 99100069618.

All Customers: Tax Withholding

We do not participate in any withholding tax schemes. Section 4.4 of the EULA which states we require payment for our products "net of tax" which means payment must be made in full without any taxes deducted. If you were told that you need to withhold tax when you buy products from Aspose, please make sure to contact our sales staff to discuss before you do that.


If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact our sales support who will be glad to assist.
