To begin calculating and collecting GST on all low-value orders for Australia
Even if you don’t have a tax ID added, GST and duty will still be collected on orders over 1,000 AUD if your store is set to pre-collect duties and taxes. You will need to ship these orders with duties and taxes prepaid (DDP/DTP) and have the duties and taxes billed back to yourself. You will not need to remit the GST collected on these high-value orders to the Australian Taxation Office. It will be collected from the carrier during customs clearance.
