Changes Are Coming To GST

Changes are coming to GST

Make sure your business is ready from 1 July 2018…

From 1 July 2018, the goods and services tax (GST) will apply to retail sales of low value physical goods ($1000 or less) that have been imported to Australia and sold to consumers. The existing processes to collect GST on imports above $1000 at the border are unchanged.

What does this mean for my business?

If your business meets the $75,000 GST registration threshold and sells low value physical goods that have been imported, you’ll need to:

  • ensure you are registered for GST
  • charge GST to customers on low value imported goods (unless they are GST-free)
  • lodge a return to the Australian Tax Office (ATO).
