GST Withholding Forms one and two.
Certain purchasers of new residential premises or potential residential land are required to withhold an amount from the contract price for payment to the ATO on behalf of the supplier of the property. Purchasers who are required to withhold an amount must complete and lodge GST Withholding Form one and Form two with the ATO.
Incoming Proprietors can now create and lodge GST Withholding Form one and Form two within the PEXA platform, as an alternative to using the ATO website. This new feature allows for forms to be populated with up to 70% of details already found in the PEXA workspace, reducing time, effort, and data entry errors.
These forms are accessible to participants in the role of Incoming Proprietor and Proprietor on Title.
Note: The GST Withholding forms can be completed in PEXA only if the contract of sale is dated 1st July 2016 and later.
For sales prior to this date, please complete the ATO GST withholding forms on the ATO website.
