FAQ:

 

What is this new tax?

 

The Argentine Government has implemented a new 35% tax, in addition to the PAIS tax and VAT.

 

You should also have a separate email from Spotify to inform you that the additional tax will be applied to your Premium subscription and you will begin to see this additional from your next payment to Spotify, as a result of the new regulations.
You will see the new charges with a separate item on your bank statement as of September 16th, 2020, the effective date of the new regulation.

 

Spanish - El gobierno argentino ha introducido un nuevo impuesto del 35% adicional al impuesto PAIS y al IVA.

 

Deberías haber recibido un correo de parte de Spotify para informarte sobre el impuesto adicional que será aplicado a tu suscripción Premium y que empezarás a ver desde tu próximo pago como resultado de las nuevas regulaciones. Verás el nuevo cargo separado en dos partes en tu extracto bancario a partir del 16 de septiembre de 2020, fecha en la que entra en vigencia la nueva regulación.

 

The charge for Spotify appears in USD on my bank statement. Could you change it to ARS?

Your price for Spotify is in Argentine Pesos (ARG). Your bank may convert this amount to USD on your statement. We’d recommend reaching out to your bank for more info about this.

 

I've contacted my bank and they told me Spotify is charging me in USD. Why is this happening?

The price you pay for Spotify is in Argentine Pesos (ARG). When processing the payment, your bank may be converting the currency to USD. You can always see the details of what you’re being charged by checking out your receipts. We have more info about this at https://support.spotify.com/article/how-can-i-get-a-receipt-for-spotify/.

 

I've seen that if you cancel your subscription and re-subscribe the currency is going to change. Is that true?

All subscriptions for Argentine Accounts for Spotify are charged in Argentine Pesos (ARG). You can always see the details of what you’re being charged by checking out your receipts at https://www.spotify.com/account/subscription/receipt/. If your payments appear in USD on your bank statement, we’d recommend reaching out to your bank for more information.

 

If you charge in ARS, why am I being taxed?

The additional charge is the result of the new regulations introduced by the Argentine Government. These regulations require the new 35% tax to be added onto payments for Spotify, in addition to the PAIS tax and VAT. The price you pay for Spotify is in Argentine Pesos (ARG) but when processing the payment, your bank may be converting the currency to USD.

 

Could you add cash-based payment options for the Premium Duo and Premium Family plans?

Cash-based payment methods are only available with a Premium Individual subscription right now. We’re aware of the request for cash-based payment options for our other subscription types and have passed the feedback onto the right folks. We'll make sure to update you on any developments.

 

Why are you increasing the price for the subscription instead of absorbing those taxes on your own?

The additional charge is the result of the new regulations introduced by the Argentine Government. These regulations require the new 35% tax to be added onto payments for Spotify, in addition to the PAIS tax and VAT. Absorbing the tax is not possible with the new regulations and we need to comply with them. You will see this new tax added as a separate line on your bank statement.

 

I live in 'Tierra del Fuego' I should be exempt from any taxes.
The current regulations require Spotify to charge the new 35% tax even if you’re located in Tierra del Fuego.

 

Is Ebanx or Spotify the one adding those taxes?
The additional charge is the result of the new regulations introduced by the Argentine Government, which is why you will see this new tax added to your subscription cost on your bank statement.

Good morning, in my Spotify account, the cost of the service is in Argentine pesos, but on my credit card it appears in dollars, in my credit card company they told me that you have to make that conversion from dollars to pesos Argentines, the credit card is only an intermediary in the payment proces
