Foxtel today welcomed the Government’s decision to enact legislation designed to level the playing field with regards to GST on digital transactions.


Bruce Meagher, Foxtel Group Director of Corporate Affairs, said, “The government’s move to enforce GST for the supply of digital content services is the right one. The digital marketplace is an increasingly competitive space and it’s critical to ensure that all players that do business in Australia do so on a level field, with no one player advantaged through tax loopholes.


“The introduction of this legislation will not only help to maintain consistency across the competitive landscape, but it will also ensure that Australia gets its due taxes from the companies that choose to do business here, which benefits all Australians.
