GST is a tax of 10% on most goods and services sold in Australia.

You must register for GST if you:

  • run a business or enterprise that has a GST turnover (gross income minus GST) that exceeds the GST threshold of $75,000
  • expect your new business to reach the GST threshold in the first year of operation
  • have a non-profit organisation with a GST turnover of $150,000 per year or more
  • are a taxi, limousine or ride-sourcing driver (regardless of turnover)
  • want to claim fuel tax credits for your business.

You can register for GST online using the Australian Government's Online services for business.

What you need

  • an Australian Business Number (ABN)
  • the myGovID app on a smart device. Your myGovID must be linked to your ABN through the Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM).
