Australian GST (Goods and Services Tax)

From 1 July 2018, as a result of changes to Australian tax legislation, Book Depository now collects and remits GST (Goods and Services Tax) on all books with a customs value of A$1000 or less that are shipped to Australia.

All prices displayed on Book Depository's website are inclusive of the local Tax and free delivery. This breakdown will be declared in the checkout prior to confirming your order. Further information about local Tax can be found in our Terms & Conditions and Help Pages.

Despite this change, in an audit undertaken in July 2018, Book Depository was found to be 21% Cheaper (on average) on 20 bestselling books compared to three leading booksellers. On popular title Barefoot Investor, Book Depository was 35% cheaper and on The Handmaid’s Tale Book Depository was 50% cheaper compared to the lowest price from the other booksellers, including GST and Delivery. Please visit our "Even Cheaper after GST" page for further information.
