Goods and services tax (GST)
A goods and services tax (GST) applies to sales of low value goods (consignments valued up to AUS$1000) imported to Australia.
Businesses that meet the registration threshold of AUS$75,000 (including merchants who sell goods, electronic distribution platform operators and re-deliverers) will need to:
- register for GST
- charge GST on sales of low value imported goods (unless they are GST-free)
- lodge returns to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO)
Businesses should not charge GST on a sale when it is worth over AUS$1000, or if multiple goods will be shipped to Australia in one consignment worth over AUS$1000, as GST, customs duties and clearance charges will be charged to the importer at the border. This also applies to the import of tobacco products and alcoholic beverages.
