Google have notified me that they will start billing GST on the "G
Suite" service I have. That is a good thing, I guess, as it indicates
that Google is going to pay more tax in Australia, or at least collect
and pass on more tax.

Subject: [Important Legal Notice] Your G Suite agreement assignment and
10% GST starting Nov 1
Date: Tue, 11 Oct 2016 23:13:52 +0000
From: “Google GSuite Billing” ...
This email is to inform you of important changes to the terms governing
your G Suite account ...
With effect on 1 November 2016, SG is assigning your agreement for the G
Suite services to Google Australia Pty Ltd. This means that beginning on
November 1, Google Australia Pty Ltd will be providing the G Suite
services to you and will be invoicing you for those services.
Google Australia Pty Ltd is required by law to charge 10% GST (Goods and
Service Tax) on its services. You will see this charge appear as a new
line item on your monthly statements for usage from 1 November 2016 onward.
Please contact your tax advisor if you have any questions regarding the
tax consequences of this change.
The assignment should not cause any interruption to your G Suite
services. Your payment method will continue to be charged automatically,
as in the past.
