"Linode will soon be collecting and remitting value added tax (VAT). In general, this applies only to customers within the European Union (EU) who have not provided us their VAT registration number." Does that mean prices will go up for EU hobbyists and others who don't have a VAT registration, and if so by how much? Or will all-taxes-included prices remain as given in https://www.linode.com/pricing ? (If that's relevant to my question, my Linode is hosted in a US datacenter.)

My apologies for not answering this sooner! Any tax will be added on to the price of your Linode, so prices will go up slightly for people in countries that charge VAT. The exact amount your monthly bill will increase by varies from country to country.

I just registered to ask the same question.

This means a price increase of between 17 to 27% depending on which EU member state someone resides in.

Unfortunately this is too much for me so I will be looking to either reduce my Linode services or leave.

Is there a date for when this is being implemented as I would like to plan around it?

Thanks.

This applies to all companies that do business with EU residents. Others that don't collect and remit VAT are evading (knowingly or not) EU laws that have apparently existed since 2003, and risk lots of trouble from EU member countries.
