Australia – GST reform – invitation to a webcast

Leave a comment

I am delighted to invite you to the next in our series of global webcasts regarding changes to GST in Australia.

On 1 July 2017 new GST rules will apply on the supply of inbound intangibles to Australian consumers. There are also proposed measures to introduce GST on the Import of Low Value Goods into Australia. With less than three months until the commencement of the Inbound intangibles measures and potentially the low value goods measures, this webcast will be an opportunity to hear from both PwC Indirect Tax Specialists (Brady Dever, Partner and Suzanne Kneen, Director) and Senior Members of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO),  Adrian Preston-Loh (Assistant Commissioner, Internationals, Indirect Tax) Amy James-Velagic (A/g Assistant Commissioner, GST Technical Product Leadership, Indirect Tax) and Jo Drum (Director, GST Technical Product Leadership, Indirect Tax).

PwC will provide an overview of these measures including details on when suppliers will be liable under the new system (highlighting some of the differences in the Australian legislation) and some of the practical questions that have arisen in determining whether sales are made to “Australian consumers” and an overview of the limited registration process and simplified reporting works. The ATO will provide insights into some of the practical issues; the ATO’s implementation strategy for this new system; and the ATO’s approach and compliance strategies for the proposed new law.

PwC and the ATO will provide an update on the low value goods measures (these are proposed to commence from 1 July 2017 but have not yet been passed by Parliament, but have been referred to the Senate Economics Committee which will be reporting back on the measures in early May).

You will have an opportunity to ask questions and interact with the ATO. This is a great opportunity to hear directly from the ATO, to understand the current approach of the ATO in addressing these matters and to convey practical considerations you are experiencing.
