Purchasing property using the margin scheme

Last updated 18 August 2021

When buying property where the margin scheme was used, you can't claim a GST credit for the GST included in the purchase price – even if it was for business purposes.

If you were charged the full rate of GST when you originally purchased a property, the margin scheme can't be used when you sell it. This is because you would have claimed the GST back as part of your business.
