GT Arcade now charging VAT on purchases? Reply:6| View:1051
So recently GT Arcade has just started charging VAT on my purchases at 10%. Given that I live in Australia I can only assume that they mean GST as VAT is at 20% while GST is 10%.
What GT Arcade might not know is that GST is only applicable on overseas goods on purchases over $
1000. So I guess they just over charge their customers the taxes and pocket it.
If they are trying to comply with Australian regulation then they should also know that it is illegal to label a product as discounted (
10% off etc) when that is the only price that has ever been advertisted or offered.
Also of note it is possible in my state for the princely sum of $65 I can have the case heard in VCAT to get my unfairly collected "tax revenue" refunded as a court order.
Stop ripping off your customers.
And your customer service is a joke. Either you employ idiots or you just don't care.

I wondered about the charging of GST also, as we're (I'm in Australia too) aren't actually buying anything tangible, so why should there be this surcharge.

Use a VPN to "fake" your country of origin ;)

  • Yeah, so far theyve only got for about US$8 but I draw the line at an extra US$20 come the Battle of the Long Night (spend US $200 for the bonus goodies). The fake tax they collect but don't pay is just a pisstake on top of exchange rate

  • But to be clear, GST (goods and services tax) can only be charged on goods exceeding AU$$1000. They are just pocketing the money.

Dear nukeso,

I understand your frustration because we're on the same page. Following your receipt, was it a payment of $50 on 8 July? Please explain more about your issue and also give us your in-game name & kingdom so we can make a report for you.

Thank you for your patient.
Regards.

Yes, every purchase since the 1st of July has had the 10% "VAT". Please note that the payments take two days to clear so a $50 recharge purchased on the 8th will show as the 10th on my bank statement which you can see is USD$55.
I have opened a few tickets but the closest I have come to not receiving a nonsense auto reply was ticket #8125528
From now on I will do recharges via credit card and any overcharging I will do a charge back.

  • Yes, as i have made in our last interaction that is an option. Another option is GT Arcade not being a sleazy classless fraudulent company.
