Understanding GST (goods and services tax)
The goods and services tax (GST) is a value added tax of 10% on most goods and services sales in Australia.
If you’re a business, organisation or individual registered for GST, it's usually best to include the GST in the price of your tickets.
It’s your responsibility as the organiser to calculate the amount of GST you need to add, and to add this to the ticket price. If it's not added to the price of the ticket, it will be your responsibility, as the organiser, to ensure the GST is paid, following tax laws.
If GST-registered attendees request a tax invoice to claim a credit for GST in the price of the ticket, it’s the organiser’s responsibility to provide the attendee with one within 28 days of receiving the request, and to make sure the requirements of the tax invoice are met as set out by law.
