I don't know anyone who has tested this yet. Naturally ebay have taken the route of adding gst to all sales, but I don't think rockauto will do the same. I know that the post office isn't acting as a tax collector, the local lpo licensee told me as much.

I recently did a order and didn't have anything added or any holdups on the AU side. They had a line in the invoice that stated "Carrier may collect duty and tax upon delivery" I ordered mid-July with a total price of ~350USD.

An hour on the phone with the tax department was as useful as tits on a bull !!If an overseas company is doing over $75.000 sales in Aust a year it should get an ATO tax number and collect GST and show it on the invoice.I can see overseas companies getting excited about being gst tax collectors for the Aust govt!! However the gentleman I spoke to said that currently the tax office is turning a blind eye to any imported goods for personal under a thousand dollars.Even though the law came in on July 1st 18. (Customs do not want a bar of it) He admitted that the cost of checking every parcel would not be cost effective,at the moment.!!Poor Gerry Harvey

Poor Gerry indeed!

I have a mate in federal politics who reckons it's a waste of time too. He lobbied the senate for a delay in the introduction.

Seems there's not one person I know who thinks it's a good idea.

Default Gst

Bought some stuff on Ebay from Greece, Latvia and I think Uk with no GST added, You can't make out much from ATO site about paying the GST here on the goods.
As said Customs don't want to collect GST so the only way I see them enforcing this is by getting a customs broker involved which will blow out the cost on smaller valued items.
Absolute JOKE.

And Gerry wasn't crying unfair playing field when he sent a lot of small business to the wall because he could get better margins buying bulk.

Rant over.

I purchased in May from RockAuto no extra GST charged.

I was emailed a 5% discount code which expires on the 12 of August that I won't use.

RockAuto discount code 8568180377063451

Potentially when it comes though border control the govt may theoretically impose GST. It’d be based on an estimate of the value of the imported goods, and the buyer would foot the GST bill.

That said, they’re not gonna bother on low-value stuff like radiator hoses - the recent changes are just yet another example of our govt spending a whole bunch of time and money on achieving nothing.
