Hi! I’m a lawyer with a new practice and this is my first post.
I incur expenses on behalf of my clients, for example title searches, lodging fees, etc. some of which include GST. I pay the expenses and then bill them to my client who reimburses me when they pay their bill.
I’m not registered for GST. I do my invoicing manually, i.e. no accounting software.
On the client’s bill, do I put “Title search $11.00 (includes $1.00 GST)“? Or do I ignore the GST completely because I’m not paying / claiming it and just put “Title search $11.00“? I thought I had to put it in so if my clients are registered they can claim it back as them paying GST – does it work like that?
