Yes, depending on the GST setting in your administration panel for your Hire-X subscription, if your business is set up for GST then GST will be automatically added to your orders, shipping and so on.

GST will be shown on invoices in accordance with Australian Taxation requirements, however you will still need to have you accountant or bookkeeper work out your BAS and GST payments as normal.

For businesses that are not registered for GST, no GST will be added to any prices.

If you already have hire terms and conditions, you can simply add them under your administrator settings. These terms and conditions will then be attached to every hire order or quote created in Hire-X.

If you don’t have terms and conditions, Hire-X provides a sample set of terms and conditions for you to review and use, but acceptance and use of these terms and conditions rests with the user. Depending on the nature of your business and what you intend to hire out, we recommend obtaining legal advice about terms and conditions of hire for your business. You can always use the sample terms and conditions we offer as a starting point and then refine them to suit your business.
