Bought an item from China today and was charged for the item, then a second charge for the GST. This is the first time this has happened. Has something changed? Will I be charged GST on all future purchases?
Yes! Actually Ebay is the one charging (though PayPal is deducting it from our card/bank because it's the payment method). So I believe Ebay should provide Tax Invoice. But alas, when I asked them, they said they don't. OMG.
I understand the GST being charged and don't have a problem with that.
But why can't we just see the total fee we are paying, and have that invoice emailed to us?
I enter the price paid into my Accounting software, then when my credit card statement is received I need to go back into Paypal and search what the GST applies to every time, which is pretty frustrating.
Can this be fixed up somehow??
