Update on Australia Tax Changes for Online Purchases - Another Year of Transformers

In what could be considered an update to a previous story we reported (here) about changes to how online companies operate in Australia - and bound to impact the bigger retailers such as Apple, eBay, Amazon, etc - fellow Seibertronian Burn has brought an article from the New Daily to our attention.

It appears as though all the expected changes to tax will kick in a year later than expected for those larger online retailers, now starting in July 2018 instead.

The new tax, which was due to be implemented next month, would have forced Australian consumers to pay a 10 per cent GST on overseas low-cost goods.

The delay is a win for international online giants but has angered local retailers, who believe they are being put at a disadvantage.

Gerry Harvey, chairman of retail behemoth Harvey Norman, argued the change was the result of clever lobbying by overseas internet retailers, who talked Australian politicians into delaying the change.

[...]

“If a product is $100 or $1000 in a shop in Australia you put 10 per cent GST on it. If the product is the same price and is imported from overseas you don’t put any GST on it. So it’s just a subsidy straight away to an offshore retailer. How anyone can say that’s a good idea is beyond me.

“If they pay no GST why should anyone in Australia pay GST?”

The government agreed to implement the tax in last year’s budget, claiming the move would level the playing field for small businesses and generate an extra $300 million in revenue over four years.


This might appease the big companies, which had threatened a geo-lock on the Australian market, but how does it affect others? And how does it affect you as an Australian collector and consumer of imported items? Let us know in the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Check it out below, along with the video again!



Rent, Buy or Share with Enterprise and the New Movie, Transformers: The Last Knight, from Director Michael Bay

Brand Creates Nostalgic Digital Video Tribute to 10-year Anniversary of Film Franchise Roots, in Celebration of June 21 Theatrical Release


ST. LOUIS June 1, 2017 -- Get ready to roll out: The Autobots and the 'auto rental bots' are joining forces to move us all forward!

Enterprise Rent-A-Car today announced a partnership with Paramount Pictures on the highly anticipated release of the new movie, Transformers: The Last Knight, directed by Michael Bay, in theaters June 21. Through the partnership, Enterprise is producing custom movie-themed digital content and promotion in branches throughout the country.

'While many may know Enterprise as simply a car rental company, we've done some evolving over the years to offer customers much more. Whether you're looking to rent, buy or share a vehicle, Enterprise has you covered,' said Lee Broughton, vice president, Enterprise Brand Marketing. That brand promise, coupled with our new content strategy focused on helping our customers pursue their passions led us to teaming up with Transformers: The Last Knight.

As part of the campaign, Enterprise has created a nostalgic video throwback to Hasbro's Transformers toy television commercials from the 1980s. The video shows two kids using their Autobot action figures to fend off the evil Decepticons, with some added assistance from Enterprise's rent, buy and share offerings. In one scene, as an Enterprise rental car helps take down the Decepticons, one of the children can be heard asking, 'How ya like that customer service, Megatron?'

In addition to the video, Enterprise customers will also notice movie-themed signage inside Enterprise branches through June.

'Enterprise has found a clever and creative way to remind Transformers fans of the toy heritage of the movie franchise while introducing their expanded brand offerings,' said LeeAnne Stables, president worldwide marketing partnerships and licensing for Paramount Pictures. 'This is a great way for us to reach summer travelers and ramp up excitement for the new film.'
