Ask Tax Question

If I'm a service provider who pays Goods & Service Tax (GST) through input materials purchased and also charge GST on the services i provide, would it be correct to claim GST attracted from international suppliers (e.g. Australia) when lodging for my tax rebate/payable from the Internal Revenue Commission in Papua New Guinea?

I'm not an expert on PNG tax but I'm surprised you have been charged Australian GST. Australian GST is primarily a tax on consumption in Australia and, as a consequence, exports are generally GST-free. However, exports will only be GST-free if the somewhat strict conditions contained in Subdiv 38-E of the Australian GST Act are met (ie ss 38-185 to 38-190). Why have you paid GST in Australia if you operate solely in PNG?
