WHEN TO CHARGE GST

IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR GST - THE GOODS AND SERVICES YOU SELL IN AUSTRALIA ARE GENERALLY TAXABLE (YOU MUST CHARGE GST IN THEIR PRICE) UNLESS THEY ARE `GST -FREE’ OR `INPUT TAXED’.

WHAT HAPPENS WITH GST?

WHEN YOU CHARGE GST ON AN ITEM - YOU ARE COLLECTING 10% FOR THE GOVERNMENT AS A GOODS AND SERVICE TAX

EACH BUSINESS ACTIVITY STATEMENT (BAS) REPORTS THIS AMOUNT AND YOU THEN MUST PAY THE GST COLLECTED LESS GST CREDITS TO THE ATO

WHEN TO CLAIM GST

IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR GST - THE GOODS AND SERVICES YOU BUY IN AUSTRALIA ARE GENERALLY TAXABLE - UNLESS GST FREE - SO YOU CLAIM THE CREDITS FOR GST YOU HAVE SPENT

WHAT HAPPENS WITH GST?

WHEN YOU SPEND GST ON AN ITEM - YOU ARE PAYING 10% AS A GOODS AND SERVICE TAX.

EACH BUSINESS ACTIVITY STATEMENT (BAS) REPORTS THIS AMOUNT AS A CREDIT AGAINST ANY GST COLLECTED ON SALES

YOU PAY THE ATO THE DIFFERENCE.
