i am totally confused and I can not find an appropriate answer anywhere, so I hope someone is able to give me an advice. I am based in Australia and I am looking forward to launch my store. All it depends on now is to set the taxes right.
So i am based in Australia but I am going to use a supplier in Germany. I know that if I would be based in Germany I would have to charge GST/VAT if I sell to a European customer and that I don't have to charge GST/VAT if I sell it outside but I does this change when I am based outside of the EU.
1. Do i have to charge and register GST/VAT in the European Countries I sell to or do I not charge any?
2. If I will have a customer from the US/Canada ect. I don't have to pay GST/VAT as I don't have nexus there? Is that right?
3. If I will have a customer from Australia and I am not GST registered (because I don't have a turnover of 75 000$ yet) I don't charge GST, right?
Do i have to be aware of anything as the supplier is in the European Union?
Unfortunately there is few information about this topic in the www and therefor I hope someone is able to help me out on this matter.
P.s. I asked an accountant in Australia but couldn't get a proper answer.
Please help :)
