Are you registered for GST?

Updated: Oct 26, 2022

Many people fall in the trap of not registering for GST when they are required too.

You must register for GST:

  • when your business or enterprise has a GST turnover (gross income from all businesses minus GST) of $75,000 or more

  • when you start a new business and expect your turnover to reach the GST threshold (or more) in the first year of operation

  • if you're already in business and have reached the GST threshold

  • if your non-profit organisation has a GST turnover of $150,000 per year or more

  • when you provide taxi or limousine travel for passengers (including ride-sourcing) regardless of your GST turnover – this applies to both owner drivers and if you lease or rent a taxi

  • if you want to claim fuel tax credits for your business or enterprise.


How to calculated your GST Turnover:

Your GST turnover is your total business income (not your profit), minus:

  • GST included in sales to your customers

  • sales that aren't for payment and aren't taxable

  • sales not connected with an enterprise you run

  • input-taxed sales you make

  • sales not connected with Australia.


How to check if your registered for GST:

  1. Search for you business using your ABN or Business Name

  2. Locate your Business and click on the ABN

4. Your GST registrations details will show up here
