Apparently the government is missing out….and a new law to charge GST to the consumer who buys goods online…..well good bye…Ebay,…..Woolies and Coles… Pet Supplies, appliances, as I use them all for my shopping….no more!
Of surveyed regular online buyers of books and DVDs, the research team of Government and tax offices showed that 60% vowed to continue to buy regularly from overseas websites, even if the level of GST charged is altered.( in other words, GST will be added….heard it could be up to 38% but who knows..????
Other key findings include:
- 12.6 million Australian adults have shopped online in the last 12 months
- Two out of every three shop online at least once a month
- 86% still maintain that price is a primary consideration. This new tax may come into place next month….Another revenue making which as everyone knows,we are the most overtaxed country ever! Read what the researchers are saying:
What and how is this happening…Not fair. Free enterprise shopping……and where will this revenue generating money go ? Nothing mentioned about this…
