Australian GST (Goods and Services Tax)
We had Australian Tax Office GST officers on our premises in Feb 2000, and below are the results of determinations made by them regarding GST.
These determinations were set out in writing to us. In fact, we were the firstto get these rulings, as the Tax Office had never come across the range and types of transactions we were dealing with on the internet. We received the written determinations two days before the GST was introduced in Australia.
Purchases made by customers living outside of Australia are not subject to GST. For customers within Australia, the following applies:
Software files purchased through Dontronics:
If you are a business, you can simply claim the 10% GST, as an input tax credit.Problem solved.
If you are an individual, then we will overcome this additional 10% GST charge,by offering a 10% discount for Australian customers paying GST. This will then enable you to pay the same global price as anyone else.
This can be done in one of two ways:
1) a REFUND
2 )a DISCOUNT COUPON
Contact Penny in sales if you wish to go ahead with this. Please don't claim the10% discount if you are a business, as you will be getting the 10% offas a tax credit anyway, and our 10% discount offer will not apply.

Basically$1000 value can be imported via any means, but exclude
consignments containing tobacco, tobacco products or alcoholic beverages.
From our own experience, 99% of low value imports (less than $1000) do not attract any additional import fees into Australia.
Bear in mind that all Australian businesses can claim this additional 10% as a tax input credit.
