Adobe slaps on GST for Aussie customers

Adobe has fallen victim to the Australian government's new digital trading laws, requiring businesses to charge an additional 10 percent GST on goods and services sold online.

Pricing for Adobe's products will go up starting next month, even though the laws won't come into effect until 1 July 2017.

Adobe informed customers of the price change today via email and on its website.

"Starting December 1, 2016, Adobe will begin to charge 10% GST on all goods and services to our customers in Australia," the company said.

"Your next bill, on or after this date, will reflect the new tax rate. Note that this change does not affect the base price of your Adobe products."

The federal government passed laws in September requiring overseas businesses to collect GST on goods and services if their Australian business had an annual turnover of $75,000 or more. The law previously only affected purchases above $1000.

Adobe's Creative Cloud suite, which includes applications like Photoshop and InDesign, starts at $79.99 per license per month for business users.
