Thanks for this article, great find. Yes i am registered but the ATO website didn’t provide much information on it. Seems as though all dropshipping products must be GST inclusive.
Customs clearance may be an issue for customers as they could be taxed twice. May have to speak to an accountant. Do you happen to recommended any firms which specialise in helping small business in Melbourne?
I too am not an accountant. But my understanding is that if you are an Aus business selling to an Aus located customer then you must charge gst.
If however you are an Aus business selling to an international (non Aus located) customer then you do not.
You can also call the ATO for advice.
I think Felicity Metcalf has it right. That was also my understanding. To make it simple, Aussies pay Aussie taxes, those outside of Australia don’t. However they may be charged taxes at their end by their own country.
