GST on Billing with Solar credits

My recent Bill and the 3 previous show a GST amount that is greater than 10% of the sum of the goods and services provided by AGL. The total pre GST takes into account usage, supply, discounts and the feed in from my solar. Total cost $296.39 - GST $ 38.82  BUT this should be $29.64!!

However I fed in $91.83 of energy from my Solar system which is GST exempt

 

COULD this be the difference between the actual GST charged and what the law states I should  be charged??

 

Guys please if you have a solar system check your bill

So it would seem the ATO is to blame - https://www.solarquotes.com.au/blog/why-are-solar-owners-charged-gst-on-money-they-never-spent/

 

That said we do not have to include the solar feed-in tariff as income - https://www.solarchoice.net.au/blog/tax-implications-of-going-solar/.

 

Swings and roundabouts?

Hi guys,

 

similar question on why gst is charged on the value of service pre any discounts or solar tariffs.

one would think (I’ll check with ATO) that’s gst is charged on the total cost less Tarif?

can you please explain and happy for you to direct me to get tax rules?

 

regards

steve
