I am located in the Netherlands and have a small business selling used bicycle parts on eBay.
When I sold a bicycleframe recently to a private person in Australia I noticed eBay added 10% GST on the invoice to the buyer and then subtracted it from the payment made to me. eBay then remits this tax to the ATO.
I wonder whether this is correct since VAT (value added tax) has already been paid when the bicycle was originally purchased in the country of origin.
This is not a new product for which no VAT has ever been paid.
Thank you for response.
