GST and Hearing Aids
Many of our clients ask us some rather taxing questions:
- Do our prices include GST?
- Are hearing aids subject to GST?
- What about batteries and accessories, do they include GST?
- If I go out of the country, can I claim back GST on hearing aid purchases?
In short, the answer is NO.
Hearing aids, batteries and most related accessories are GST-FREE as they are considered medical aids and appliances under Schedule 3 to the GST Act.
