For our Aussie shopper:
As of July 1, 2018, Australia applied a new tax for low-value imported goods imported by consumers into Australia. If you ship products to Australia here is some basic information on the Australia Goods and Services Tax (GST) and how the new law may affect you and your business.
Australia’s Goods and Services Tax – What is Changing?
Prior to July 1, 2018, consumers in Australia could purchase products from international sellers and have them imported duty and tax-free as long as the product value was less than A$1,000. (GST was already being applied to goods and services over A$1,000.)
Effective as of July 1, 2018, Australia will now apply the 10% GST to all imports, including products valued under A$1,000.
