Rules for GST tax invoices are changing
Keeping GST records is about to get easier.
New laws introduced by the Government have modernised the GST rules for invoicing and record keeping.
Date the new rules take effect
Some changes came into effect on 30 March 2022. The majority come into effect on 1 April 2023.
Minimum requirements for record keeping
The new rules set out the minimum set of records required to support the figures in your GST returns. How you calculate GST is not changing, only the rules relating to invoicing and record keeping.
Most people will be able to rely on the information already being collected in the course of their business.
The changes are designed for greater flexibility, so invoicing practices compliant with the current rules will comply with the new rules.
