Day 423 - Addington Action needs to be GST registered

Friday, 20 April 2012 4:50 p.m. by addingtonaction

Addington Action recently reached the threshold for GST registration because of the unexpected volume of donations.

Expecting annual income to be around $100K from donations and annual expenditure of $100K on building materials, fuel, rent, work tools, etc. So should get about $15K of GST back as a refund.

We have applied for GST registration from IRD with the start date being April 1 2012 to make it easier for the financial annual returns.
