In view of the upcoming goods and service tax (GST) law changes, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is organising a series of business information seminars in key locations around the world. These sessions focus on the goods and services tax (GST) law changes that apply from 1 July 2018 to low value imported goods sold to consumers in Australia. Accountancy Europe is pleased to host and contribute to ATO’s Brussels session.

The international sessions are designed for online marketplaces, merchants and re-deliverers that supply these goods, and  also for advisers and tax professionals.



The information sessions will cover key elements of the changes including:

  • An overview of Australia’s vendor collection model
  • Defining low value imported goods
  • How this affects suppliers and deemed suppliers for GST purposes
  • The rules relating to consumer and business purchases
  • Invoicing and customs information
  • Registration, returns and payments
  • The compliance approach of the ATO
  • A comparison with our GST law on imported services and digital supplies.
