NOTE: Due to unique PSTN taxes and regulations, there are implications for Office 365 partners who transact the new promotional Office 365 E5 SKU.
In some countries, Skype for Business PSTN Services (e.g., PSTN Conferencing or PSTN Calling) require special tax and regulatory requirements. Therefore, invoicing and taxation on the resale of these services require different treatment than other Office 365 Services. To simplify your experience in tax-inclusive countries, we chose to price PSTN services on a tax-inclusive basis.
In tax-inclusive countries, if you mark up the price of a Microsoft PSTN Service (e.g., PSTN Conferencing or PSTN Calling), you'll likely be responsible for calculating and remitting PSTN taxes and fees. As always, talk to your tax and legal counsel to understand your organizations' responsibility regarding PSTN Services regulation, taxes and fees, and other potential liabilities.
