Australia GST

Australia's Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a value-added tax levied on most
goods and services sold or consumed in Australia.

How Australia GST works

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

Some things don’t have GST included, these are called GST-free sales.

When to charge GST (and when not to)

If you are registered for GST – or required to be – the goods and services you sell in Australia are taxable unless they are GST-free or input taxed.

Non-profit organisations may be entitled to concessions on some transactions.

When to provide a tax invoice

If a customer asks for a tax invoice, you must provide one within 28 days, unless it is for a sale of $82.50 (including GST) or less.

The information a tax invoice must include depends on:

  • The sale amount
  • The sale type (for example, a sale that includes both taxable and non-taxable items)
  • Who issues the tax invoice.
