I haven’t read every post in this thread fully … BUT ;)

I beleive there are times when NOT registering for GST is a good thing.

For a small traders (under 75K obviously) you sells items to the general public (who can’t claim the GST component back) which have a reasonably large markup on the cost of producing the items (i.e. you would pay far more GST then what you can claim back).

Under this scenario you can get a definate advantage (as well as your customers getting a less expensive product) against large businesses who need to charge GST.
