According to the tech giant, customers of Apple in nations including Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, South Korea, and Poland would have to pay more starting next month for apps and in-app purchases. The California-based business announced on Monday that prices would start to apply on October 5. Customers in Egypt, Sweden, Vietnam, and any other countries that use the euro will also be impacted by the higher costs.
The adjustments reflect new laws in Vietnam that mandate that Apple collects and pay value-added tax (VAT) and corporate income taxes (CIT), both of which have a 5 percent charge, the company said. The adjustments, according to Sydney, Australia-based tech industry expert Trevor Long, will primarily affect in-app purchases with the lowest pricing tiers.
