Changes To Low Value Import Rules In Australia

Currently all goods imported into Australia with a value of less than 1,000 AUD are exempted from from payment of import GST. However effective 1 July 2017, this exemption will be removed and import GST will be payable on all goods imported regardless of their value. These changes will mean that many businesses not established in Australia will have to register for GST if the threshold is breached.
