The GST (goods and and services tax) in Australia is changing on 1 July 2017 and will now apply on sales from foreign sellers (i.e. LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet) to Australian customers.
The GST is 10% and applies on both physical and digital products, such as downloadable patterns, similar to how the VAT works for EU customers. Since LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet are the legal seller to the customer, we’re also responsible for collecting the GST and pay to the authorities. As a designer selling through LoveKnitting or LoveCrochet, you do not need to register for GST.
If you are a GST registered designer in Australia, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as we need to have your GST number on the invoices.
