Starting from April, Amazon.com Inc is set to raise fees by 3% for Spanish companies that use its platform. The development comes in the wake of the Spanish government imposing a digital tax on large tech companies.
Confirming the so-called Google tax, a spokesman for Amazon said, after Spain begun charging a digital tax on large companies from January 21, users who use its services in the country would be affected.
Countries across the globe are examining ways to tax global tech companies on revenues generated in their economies in the absence of wider agreement on how to tackle their growing role in business and commerce.
A spokesman from Amazon said, the company advocates a global approach rather than taxes imposed by individual countries.
