Gayle Dickerson Gayle Dickerson

What it means for your business

The Federal government shows little interest in lowering the GST-free threshold on overseas purchases. Yet each new Federal budget raises the spectre of an increase in the local rate of GST or a broadening of its base. The result is ever increasing competition from overseas online retailers.
