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.
