  • Buy services or digital products from overseas?


    1 July 2017

    From 1 July 2017, GST applies to imported services and digital products.

    If you are an Australian GST registered business, you will not be charged GST on your purchases from a non-resident supplier if you:

    • provide your ABN to the non-resident supplier
    • state you are registered for GST.

    Examples of imported services and digital products from overseas include:

    • digital products such as streaming or downloading of movies, music, apps, games and e-books
    • services such as architectural, educational and legal.

    If you are purchasing imported services and digital products only for your personal use, you should not provide your ABN.
