Export GST Return

GST Refund for Exports
GST is a broad based tax of 10% on most goods, services and other items sold or consumed in Australia. When you export goods to overseas, there are no GST components included, so you can claim 10% GST back in most goods and services excluding basic food/water/raw material.


ATO has a rule for export goods refunds which is defined as; if you export goods to overseas within 60 days of purchase, you are eligible to claim 10% GST back if those goods have GST. For examples, you purchase $1100 chocolate to export within 60 days, You are eligible to refund $100.
