## GST amount

Switched-on

calculating GST, I do not know how you guys work out the GST amount on a bill. It's not the total amount of 10% can you show the calculation of the GST total in the future bills please?

ie Total charge: \$214.66

GST:  \$17.99 What % of it????

Hey Someone,

Firstly this is not a new idea

Should be in the heading "Get Support" and sub title "Billing"

@David_AGL  or another may want to move this.

AGL has a document.

Here  is my last bill. (I will put the maths in RED and BOLD for you)

New charges and credits.
Usage and supply charges                          Units                   Price                 Amount
General Usage                                            498.92kWh        \$0.378                 \$188.59
Supply charge                                                    90 days        \$0.830                  \$74.70
Total charges                                                                                                  + \$263.29

(General Usage + Supply Charge = \$263.29  ..... this is the amount I owe AGL for electricity and supply)

Credits
Standard Feed-in Tariff*                       1979.349kWh        \$0.2                    \$395.87cr
Total credits                                                                                                  - \$395.87cr

(This is the amount  that AGL owes me for solar feed-in  \$397.87)

Total new charges and credits                                                                       -\$132.58cr

(This is    \$397.87 minus \$263.29 = \$132.58   Credit to me)

Total GST                                        + \$26.33

( GST is 10% of \$263.29   = \$26.329 (with rounding)  = \$26.33)

Account Due                                = \$106.25cr

(Account Due is \$132.58 that AGL owes me, minus the GST = -\$132.58+ \$26.33)

AGL now owes me \$106.25

Now I presume without seeing your actual bill that your USAGE Charges totalled \$179.90 as that is what your GST is.

You must have other items on your bill that you have not stated as (\$179.90 + \$17.99 = \$197.89)

You have stated \$214.66 as your amount.

I've moved this across to the Accounts and Billing forum.

@NeilC has done a great job of breaking down the bill explainer. There may also be fees and charges on your bill that do not include GST. See https://community.agl.com.au/t5/Plans-Rates-and-Pricing/Do-fees-and-charges-include-GST/ta-p/12724
