      That's not new, they've had that for at least a year or more.

          Ebay is very clear that their FEES, ie. what they charge you as a sales commission, will have added GST from 1st July.

          Which is not the same as the total price having a GST on it.

            Here it comes!

            --------------------------------

            GST is coming for low value imports understand what it means for you when using ShopMate

            Hi Cunt,

            The Australian Government has passed laws which extend the Goods and Services Tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods.

            This change will mean that from 1 July 2018, Australia Post will be required to collect GST from you on items valued at $1,000AUD or less that you ship into Australia using ShopMate, and pay that GST to the Australian Tax Office (ATO). The rate of GST is 10%.

            The existing processes to collect GST on imports with values above $1,000AUD will remain the same.

            GST will be payable on:

            1.The value of the item(s) you are shipping into Australia via ShopMate including any shipping fees or local taxes paid to the USA retailer, and
            2.The value of the ShopMate shipping and service fee (including Extra Cover if applicable)

            From 1 July 2018, each time you check out a ShopMate parcel and declare the value of the goods, you will be asked to provide payment for your ShopMate shipping and the applicable GST all in the same transaction.

            What you need to do:
            Within 48 hours of providing payment for each ShopMate transaction you will need to email Australia Post the invoice you receive from your USA retailer.*

            How to email us your invoice:

            1.Simply email a copy of your USA retailer invoice to ShopMateInvoice@auspost.com.au
            2.Include your first and last name and ShopMate Suite Number in the email subject line ◦Your suite number is the second address line of your ShopMate USA address
            ◦e.g. Subject line: John Smith, Suite SM-2364-5833

            --------------------------------

            Just a little over a month until the shit hits the fan.

                everyone needs to order a shit load of separate little items from china and just flood the fuck out of them with paperwork so it costs way more than the collected GST to process

                      Yup, ditto. Small fitting here, clip there etc.

                      Going to bring in a larger Amazon parcel in a few weeks though, and perhaps a shipito run. But from now I think most of my Shipito stuff will be pick up when im in the US.

                          On another note, I went to place an order from summit about a month ago and the pricks tried to add Aussie Govco tax at check out. I had to drop a couple of items to get rid of the extra cost of about $250 from memory.

                          How are summit sending the Australian government this money I wonder?

                            My understanding is that all courier/mail services will be responsible for collecting it.

                              Is this for items inbound from all countries, or just the USA?

                              Also, why can't Auspost, et al, just bill you the GST amount after the fact?

                                Mate just sent me this from FB today.

                                I think freight forwarding companys will be the only answer for these kind of scenarios
