It's a good idea... Nov 16, 2003

...if you're dealing with agencies they will ask you for ABN. And it's easy to register and free of charge. (I did it online two years ago.)

www.ato.gov.au

In case you earn over 50,000 AUD per year you need to register for GST otherwise not.

Just visit the web-site or your nearest Taxation Office.

Cheers!

GST? Apr 25

The GST limit has increased to $75,000/year.

Do we have to charge GST to foreign clients or only Australian clients?
