However, operators should be aware that the Australian government is changing the law in response to this digital disruption. From July 1st, ALL overseas businesses that meet the GST registration threshold of $75,000 are on the hook for GST on goods worth less than $1000!
What does this mean for you as a participant in eCommerce?
If you are a business owner making a purchase, you may need to contact your supplier for a GST refund on some of your goods. With many purchases at less than $1000, this can add up fast.
For suppliers, getting ready for the changes in the new GST system is now more important than ever. Your clients may start requesting GST refunds, and compliance with the Australian Tax Office may become an issue for you.
