There’s good news for online retailers who sell to Australian customers! TaxJar’s SmartCalc’s sales tax API now supports Australia’s goods and services tax (GST).
As you might have surmised from the name, Australian GST is a broad tax of 10% imposed on the sale of most goods and services in Australia. Companies liable to collect GST generally add 10% to the price they charge for goods and services. They can also claim credits for the GST they pay in order to purchase those goods and services to resale in their business. Under this system, GST is ultimately paid by the end user. From there, GST is used to fund roads, housing, public safety and other services forAustralian taxpayers.
