GST low value threshold campaign

Don't make us pay more to shop online.

Don't make us pay more to shop online

Right now you don't pay GST on anything from an overseas store worth less than $1000. There's a good reason for this: it costs the government more to collect these payments than they'd make back.

Collecting a $38 parcel bought online could cost you an extra $17.80 once you include GST and parcel processing fees. Worse still, there's a proposal to have you pay this fee at the post office every time you're sent a parcel.

That's why we're calling for proof that changing the GST low value threshold is worth the costs of collection.
