(6/29 update) Changes for parcels bound for Australia: GST

To kind attention of ZenMarket users in Australia,

Due to changes in Australian law ZenMarket as an overseas business that ships goods to Australia is now obliged to collect GST (Goods and Services Tax) from Australian customers and lodge returns to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

For this reason, starting July 1st in addition to international shipping and insurance (if applicable) we will be charging 10% of the declared value for parcels with Low Value Goods (1000 AUD or less) bound for Australia as GST (Goods and Services Tax) and pay it to Australian Taxation Office (ATO) on our clients’ behalf.

Please note that GST will not be charged for parcels with a declared price of over 1000 AUD. In this case, customers will need to pay GST directly to customs.

The amount charged will be displayed separately in your “Payments” tab.

The calculations will be made based on the daily rate; to avoid confusion, the invoice will state “GST paid” or “GST not paid” respectively.

We hope for your kind understanding.

*Please note that GST fee will apply to the parcels sent from July 1st, regardless of when they were packed/created/paid for.

 

Best regards,

ZenMarket Team
