Upcoming tax changes for podcasts

In the next few days, your proceeds will be adjusted to reflect the following tax changes:

  • Georgia: New value-added tax of 18%
  • Tajikistan: New value-added tax of 18% that applies to podcast creators based outside of Tajikistan
  • Italy: Decrease in the Digital Services Tax effective rate

Once these changes go into effect, your proceeds will be updated for any Channel that is currently set up with a monthly or annual subscription. Your proceeds will be calculated based on the price you set in Apple Podcasts Connect minus the new tax and Apple’s commission.

You can change the price of your podcast subscriptions (or preserve prices for existing subscribers) at any time in Apple Podcasts Connect.
