As per the report, Apple has increased its app charges in six countries including India, Indonesia, Brazil, Colombia, South Africa, and Russia by the company. Apple said in a blog post that the company had to take this step due to tax increases.
GST is levied on internet companies in India at 18 percent. In addition, 2% is levied the same levy tax. It is a direct tax levied on earnings from foreign technology companies through digital transactions. Apple says that when there is a change in tax or foreign exchange rate, we have to update the prices of the App Store.
