GST Concessions for Schools

15 December 2022

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has released some helpful consolidated information on a range of GST concessions for schools and other charities.

Additional goods and services (GST) concessions are available to:

  • Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) registered charities that are endorsed to access GST charity concessions, such as Christian schools,
  • gift-deductible entities,
  • government schools.

For GST purposes:

  • an endorsed charity is a charity that is registered with the ACNC and endorsed for GST concessions by the ATO
  • a gift deductible entity is an entity that can receive tax-deductible gifts or contributions.

The ATO guidance then covers the application of a range of concessions including those for gifts, school tuckshops and a range of other activities.

For more information see the ATO website here.
