GST and NSW State taxes
NSW State taxes do not attract GST
State taxes and duties are generally calculated on GST-inclusive prices. However, for the hire of goods, duty is calculated on the hiring charges exclusive of GST.
GST is excluded from the liable wages for payroll tax.
Before and after the GST
In situations where the period to which the State tax relates straddled the GST start date, GST is generally be apportioned in these cases and duty, when applied, is only imposed on the actual GST imposed.
