Tax free shopping

J.P. from Auckland writes, “Anything bought from an Op’ shop saves you 15 percent G.S.T. – on top of a bargain.”

Comment from Oily Rag Ed’ – J.P. is correct! The IRD website confirms donated goods and services sold by non-profit bodies are exempt from GST. That means they do not include GST in their prices.

While on the topic of Op’ shops, Oily Rag Ed’ was browsing the local Hospice charity shop the other day and was amazed at how busy it was! And there was lots of good stuff too.
