GST overview ATO GST Page

"Goods and services tax (GST) is a broad-based tax of 10% on most goods, services and other items sold or consumed in Australia."

The "most" in this statement is the most misleading word there is.

There are """so"""" many variations, exemptions and interpretations.

Examples:

  • Most insurances
  • Phone bills that still include the white/yellow pages listing
  • Food
  • Imported goods
  • Digital goods
  • Fees and charges
  • Australian v non Australian companies
  • Second hand goods
  • Trading of going concerns
  • Business to Business v Business to Consumer
