It is also available for up to the $20,000 mark for certain items.GST exemption covers up to 10 per cent of the value of the purchase above the $10k threshold.
You may also be eligible for GST exemption in other states and territories, including Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania.GSPA spokesperson Natalie Gannon says GST exemption is a measure to allow GST users to choose to buy in a state or territory, which is different from the GST rate they pay in their home state.
She says there is no distinction between what people in the states pay in GST and what people pay in the GST system.
“In the case of GST exemptions, there is nothing that says you have to be in one of those states to get an exemption,” Ms Gannon said.
“What’s important is that it’s fair for the person buying the goods or service, they can choose to pay GST in that state or that territory.”GST exemptions for goods and servicesThe GSA has previously announced the GST exemptions for certain goods and service items.
These include:books, CDs; DVDs; toys; jewellery; food and beverage; and alcohol.GSA is now working on a list of the items that it considers most valuable, but Ms Guster says it will not release any details on the items until it has released those items to the public.
“The information we are releasing will include how much GST will be added to the price of each item, how many GST exemptions will be available for each item and whether the exemption applies to all items,” Ms O’Sullivan said.GCC tax relief is available to all Australians who are eligible for the GST.
