Aussie Online Shoppers Spared GST For Now

With the strong Australian Dollars, more and more Australian shoppers are shopping online, especially from US webstores. This puts pressure on Australian retailers who are not as competitive in their pricing because of GST. And these are the people who are calling on the Government to imposed GST on goods bought online.

The opposition is against that which makes it difficult for the Government to look for a balance to keep every party pleased. It will be interesting to see what solution they will come out with in the end, but it looks like it would not be so worthy to shop online anymore for Australian online shoppers if GST is imposed.
