A couple of years ago our government made it so GST has to be collected by larger businesses overseas (many countries are doing it now) and they are considered the supplier even if they have individuals with their own businesses using them. I don’t think I have explained that properly, but anyway, they are required to collect GST from people/businesses who use them and remit it to our government.
Yes, they charge on the retail price and you just have to take that into account in your pricing because you can’t claim it back as you aren’t GST registered (this is why I encourage small businesses who are not GST registered to register anyway, whether they need to or not).
All larger foreign business with sellers selling to Australia have to do this including places like Ebay, Amazon and any others that sell more than $75,000 into Aus etc.
