Goods and Services Tax (GST)

While the P&C is a not for profit organisation, we are required to be registered for GST. Due to the increasing size of our P&C activities, from Semester 2 we are obligated to include an amount for GST in our invoicing where applicable. While some of our goods and services are exempt from GST, e.g. canteen, learn to swim lessons and most fundraising, this is not the case for all the services that we offer.

What does this mean for you? If your child participates in an activity or you use a service that attracts GST, you will see a GST amount on your invoice.

We believe that the extracurricular programmes offered by our committees are enjoyed by the children, are great value for money (as costs are minimised due to the many volunteers that assist in the running of these programmes) and are of a high standard. In order to continue to offer these wonderful programmes we need to be able to recoup all of our costs.

On behalf of the P&C, I thank you for your continued support and understanding.
