DDUG and GST (Goods and Services Tax)

DDUG has an income of less than $A100,000 per annum. This means the Group, as a Non-Profit Body, is not required to register for GST. Our invoices therefore do not include any GST component. It also means the Group cannot claim any credits for Input Tax for the GST included in the price of goods and services we buy on your behalf. If our income were to increase, the Board may choose to review this matter of GST registration.

DDUG and Auditors

DDUG is not a Prescribed Association (e.g. we do not have an income of $200,000 or gross assets of $500,000) and are not required to have external auditors (paid or unpaid).
