Hi,

the answer to my question appears to be very elusive when searching online, even on Shopify's FAQ.

 

That is, im about to embark on a shopify store and sell to australians, and i already know that i wont be registering for GST initially as i wont likely get to the $75k threshold straight away.

 

My question rather relates to the fact that from 1-7-2018 GST is to be charged on imports sold in australia up to $1,000 in value, ie low value imports. I note Shopify is a dropshipping model, however, is Shopify regarded as an EDP for GST purposes....meaning i do NOT need to charge and report on GST for items likely costing <$50 each etc ???

 

thanks
