GST rules prevent superyacht charters, costing Gold Coast big money


THE Gold Coast and nation are missing out on up to $100,000 a week per vessel from visiting foreign superyachts because stiff GST rules block them running local charters.

Foreign superyachts avoid offering charters in Australia waters because they must pay a hefty 10 per cent GST on the value of the vessel. For a vessel worth $50 million, that’s a $5 million GST bill.
