REMINDER: New Australian law applying GST to imported digital products and services from 1 July 2017

30 June 2017

From 1 July 2017, Australia will introduce a Goods and Services Tax (GST) on the international sales of digital services to Australian consumers.

This new obligation will mean that, subject to an AUS$75,000 threshold, non-resident businesses selling services to consumers will be required to charge GST at 10% on their sales of electronic services.

This new tax will be applied very broadly to sales of anything except goods and real property. Further detailed information can be found via this link.
