    Registering for GST

    You must register your non-profit organisation for GST if it has a GST turnover of $150,000 or more.

    You may register voluntarily for GST if your GST turnover is less than $150,000.

    Attention

    In some circumstances, you must register for GST even if your turnover is less than $150,000. For example, your non-profit organisation must be registered in order to create and maintain non-profit sub-entities.
