Beginners Guide: What are Tax invoices? - KPG Taxation

Do you need to give a tax invoice to customers?

If a customer or client asks you for a tax invoice, you must provide this within 28 days of the day they can ask you for it.

You must be registered for GST to issue a tax invoice.

Example

Sarah’s bakery is getting a lot of catering orders lately. She knows that sandwiches, cake, and fruit platters are all subjected to GST. She prepares a tax invoice for her clients and clearly states the GST that she has charged. She sends the tax invoice along with their order so she doesn’t forget to do it later.

What else you can claim in GST?

If you use fuels in your business and meet certain conditions you can claim fuel tax credits. For example, you may be able to claim fuel tax credits for fuel used in machinery or equipment, or for petrol used in vehicles with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) greater than 4.5 tonnes.

What can you claim depends on the type of fuel and how it was used? These credits will give you back some of the money you paid for your fuel.
