Facebook will now charge VAT for your business Facebook account. This will come into effect in September. All those with business accounts you can check your email , Facebook sent the email notification today. Below is part of the email.

Due to implementation of a value-added tax (VAT) in Zimbabwe, Facebook is required to charge VAT on the sale of ads to all advertisers in Zimbabwe. All advertisers with a business country of Zimbabwe will be charged an additional 14.5% VAT on advertising services purchased on or after September 1, 2020.

You don’t have to enter a Zimbabwe Tax ID. However, if you’re registered for VAT and provide your Tax ID, your Tax ID will show up on your ads receipts. This may help you recover any VAT you paid to Zimbabwe tax authorities if you are a VAT registered business in Zimbabwe.

Thank you
