It is definitely simpler to be registered for GST.

However, from what I understand from the ato.gov.au

(a) No-one can claim exemption. All invoices that include GST must be paid in full. You can’t ask for an invoice that is GST exempt.

(b) If you are not GST registered you can only claim the portion that you paid without GST as the deduction.

(c) On your own invoices for sales you must put Tax Invoice GST Free so that the client does not try to claim for GST.

All GST are monies that are taxes for the government.

This is not tax or legal advice.
