I've been looking into various cross platform cloud storage/sync services lately. Since the addition release of an OS X client, Ubuntu one is starting to look very interesting (for various reasons I use all three platforms).

I have a question, though, concerning the pricing plan. As a freelancer, I've a VAT-number (registered in Sweden), and would like to know if VAT is included in the price. If yes, how do I go about to pull it off? Purchasing goods and services from outside of Sweden, I've noticed at least two ways to handle this, which is why I'm asking. Google for instance adds local tax which I then can pull off in my accounts with the Swedish tax agency. Amazon, on the other hand, asks for my VAT-number, after which they themselves pull the VAT off of my purchases. How does canonical handle this?

For what it matters, I'm looking into 50-100 GB of storage.

Reading the Canonical store's Terms under Sales Tax it says 'Once you have created an account on the store the prices displayed will be INC VAT or EX VAT depending on your registered country.' It looks like you need to first create an account and see. (Posting as a comment since this really doesn't answer the question yet.) – Tom Brossman Oct 11 '12 at 21:57
Thanks! I've already registered an account but haven't seen that bit of info. I'll look into it. – user96074 Oct 12 '12 at 6:05
That information is for the Canonical merchandise shop, and not Ubuntu One. You should open a support request at instead. – dobey Oct 12 '12 at 15:02

I purchased from Europe, and VAT was included
