Generally speaking, exported goods are GST-free if exported from Australia within 60 days of:
Supplies of things other than goods for consumption provided outside Australia, such as services, various rights, and other professional services are also considered GST-free.
You can still claim credits for the GST included in the price of purchases you incur in your activity statement.
You can find more information about GST exports on our website, alternatively you can phone us on 13 28 66 between 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday to speak with an operator.
