          Exactly the same as VAT. It is quite a contentious issue in Ozland as I recall it was only introduced in late 90s or early 00s

    Has it something to do with getting around the censorship laws in Australia?
    They cant sell games rated 18s or some shite like that

      It’s tax free… (and there for cheaper) GST is the Australian version of VAT…. Australian law states that any goods under the value of a AUS$1000 can be imported from companies based outside Australia.. in this case, his Irish subsidiary…

    Ho Ho – It is with some reluctance that I choose to allow myself and my customers to evade tax.
    I have been forced into this move by the ridiculous stand on taxation taken by the Australian government.

    I was speaking to Bono the other day …. etc etc
