Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question. I am not an Oz tax experts, but the treatment your signage will receive on arrival in Australia mirrors what would happen in the UK. As these goods are exports from the UK, although UK VAT is charged, this will be at 0%; exports are a zero rated supply. Unless your UK supplier opted to voluntarily register for GST, some do, this tax would not apply. I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance. .
