Registering for the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in Australia is a necessary step for businesses that meet certain turnover thresholds or are otherwise required to register. Here are the general steps to register for GST in Australia:

  1. Determine if registration is required:
    • Your business or enterprise must register for GST if your annual turnover (gross income from all businesses minus GST) is $75,000 or more (or $150,000 or more for non-profit organizations).
    • when you start a new business and expect your turnover to reach the GST threshold (or more) in the first year of operation
    • if you're already in business and have reached the GST threshold
    • when you provide taxi or limousine travel for passengers (including ride-sourcing) regardless of your GST turnover – this applies to both owner-drivers and if you lease or rent a taxi
    • if you want to claim fuel tax credits for your business or enterprise.
    • You can also voluntarily register for GST if your business or enterprise turnover is below the threshold. This may be beneficial if you want to claim claim fuel tax credits.
    • Registering for GST is optional if your business or enterprise doesn’t fit into one of these categories. If you choose to register, generally you must stay registered for at least 12 months.
  2. Gather Necessary Information:
    • Before starting the registration process, make sure you have the following information ready:
      • Your Australian Business Number (ABN). If you don't have one, you'll need to apply for an ABN first.
      • Your business structure and contact details.
      • Details about your business activities and the types of goods and services you provide.
      • Information about your expected turnover.
  3. Register Online:
    • The most common way to register for GST in Australia is by using the Australian Business Register (ABR) online portal. Here's how to do it:
      • Go to the ABR website: https://abr.gov.au/
      • Log in or create an AUSkey account, which is used for secure online transactions with government agencies.
      • Follow the prompts to complete the GST registration form.
      • Provide all the required information, including your ABN and business details.
      • Submit the registration form.
  4. Await Confirmation:
    • After submitting your registration, you'll receive a GST registration confirmation from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). This confirmation will include your GST registration details and effective date.
  5. Start Charging and Collecting GST:
    • Once registered for GST, your business must start charging and collecting GST on taxable sales. You should also include the GST amount on your tax invoices.
  6. Keep Records:
    • It's essential to maintain accurate records of your sales, expenses, and GST collected and paid. This will help you complete your GST returns correctly.
  7. Lodge GST Returns:
    • Depending on your reporting cycle (usually quarterly or monthly), you'll need to lodge your GST returns with the ATO. This involves reporting the GST collected and paid and calculating the net amount to be remitted or refunded.
  8. Compliance:
    • Ensure that your business complies with GST regulations and deadlines. Penalties may apply for non-compliance.
