• 4.a.17. Is cutting and edging of a lens supplied by an optical laboratory to an optometrist subject to GST?

    Non-interpretative – straight application of the law.

    No. Where an optical laboratory supplies lenses for prescription spectacles and, as part of the supply of the finished lenses, cutting and edging is required, the cutting and edging is part of the supply of the finished lenses and will be GST-free.
