UPDATE: New Australian law applying GST to imported digital products and services

30 March 2017

Australia has introduced a new law applying Goods and Services Tax (GST) to international sales of services and digital products to Australian consumers.

This new law will be introduced from 1 July 2017 and will mean that, subject to an A$75,000 threshold, non-resident businesses selling services to consumers will be required to charge GST at 10% on their sales of 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.
