by ordinary parcel post with Australia Post.
Many Green Harvest customers who buy our seeds for sprouting, or who are interested in reselling our range of
sprouting and microgreen seeds have written to us asking for clarification as to why seeds sold for sprouting
attract GST, since they might be considered to be a food product. The Australian Taxation Office ruling on this
issue is that they do attract GST because they require processing (sprouting) and so are not considered to be
categorised as "food for human consumption". The following is from the ATO website:
If a supply of something is not for human consumption, it is not food. Even though produce
may be supplied for human consumption there are exclusions from the definition of food that may also need to be
considered. These exclusions can prevent produce from meeting the definition of food. For pulses, the relevant
'any grain, cereal or sugar cane that has not been subject to
any process or treatment resulting in an alteration of its form, nature or condition.'
The word 'grain' is not defined in the GST act and therefore takes it ordinary meaning. Although 'grain' most
commonly implies the edible seeds of cereal, it can also apply to other hard seeds, such as sunflower seeds,
linseed, rapeseed (canola) and dried pulses.
More detail can be found can be found on the ATO website:
