Upcoming tax and price changes for apps and in-app purchases

Starting next week, prices of apps and in-app purchases (excluding auto-renewable subscriptions) on the App Store will increase in Ghana and Turkey. In Ghana, these increases also consider a new value-added tax of 12.5% and additional levies of 6%.

Your proceeds will be adjusted accordingly and will be calculated based on the tax-exclusive price. Exhibit B of the Paid Applications Agreement has been updated to indicate that Apple collects and remits applicable taxes in Ghana.

In addition, proceeds for e-publications in Estonia have been adjusted to reflect a value-added tax decrease from 9% to 5%, if you’ve selected the appropriate tax category in App Store Connect.

Once these changes go into effect, the Pricing and Availability section of My Apps will be updated. You can change the price of your apps and in-app purchases (including auto-renewable subscriptions) at any time in App Store Connect. If you offer subscriptions, you can choose to preserve prices for existing subscribers.
