The ATO has issued guidelines on how to determine whether supplies made by charities for nominal consideration are GST-free if they are for *nominal consideration for the purpose of benchmarking.
Supplies by endorsed charities are GST-free if they are for provided for *nominal consideration. GST-free activities:
🔸 If you are an endorsed charity, your supplies are GST-free if you provide them for *nominal consideration.
🔸 An endorsed charity must be: 1. registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission; and 2. also be endorsed by the ATO to access these GST charity concessions. Consideration and *nominal consideration:
🔹 Consideration means all payments, both monetary and non-monetary for the supply, regardless of who makes the payments.
🔹 Nominal consideration is when an endorsed charity makes a supply and the consideration received satisfies the relevant threshold test.
