- Your 2019-2020 “Current turnover” totals is $75,000 or more and For Non profit organizations have turnover is $150,000 or more need to register your GST and your turnover is for current month and previous 11 months will be considered as well.
- Your “Future Gst turnover” if you feel like it’s been $75,000 or more and if you have non-profit organisation and have turnover $150,000 or more
For Businesses, we need company’s expenses and sales for registration which makes registration easier.
When you calculate and expected your projected GST turnover, you don’t include in GST is for:
- If you sale your business assets such as the sale of a capital asset that you receive amount on it
- any sale you want make, or are likely to make, solely as a consequence of ceasing to carry on an enterprise, or substantially and permanently reducing the size or scale of an enterprise or business
If your projected GST turnover will be below the GST threshold and doesn’t matter if your current GST turnover is at, or more, you don’t have to register for GST.
If you’re a member of a GST group, your business turnover includes the turnover of the other group members for GST group and it doesn’t include transactions between group members.
