You need to give us details of:

  • either the particular type of supply provided to you or a list of proposed suppliers and their GST numbers.

Send us a proposed tax invoice

Attach a copy of the tax invoice you propose to issue to the seller.

What happens next

If we approve your application, we'll send you a letter confirming you can issue buyer-created tax invoices.

You need to keep this letter with your GST records.
