GST on international flights

Hi, we have booked some international flights on behalf of a client, and the client has mentioned that these will be GST free (which is stated on the flight invoices). But we have previously spoken to our accountant about GST free purchases (within australia and for international purchases) and they have said we are meant to add GST onto these purchases and then invoice the client for the amount plus GST. 

 

We have had some push back from previous clients and I have done some googling, but I'm wondering if anyone can assit with whether this is correct. Or do we just charge the client the amount with no GST/excluding GST for international flights?

    I understand this information needs to be cleared up. Unfortunately, this would be considered financial advice and we aren't allowed to provide that. I would recommend you follow how the accountant initially suggested it be recorded. If you're still in doubt, I would advise you to find another accountant to receive a second opinion. 

     

    Also, we would appreciate it if you could post again about how you went through this. This would help other users who might encounter a similar issue. 

     

    Thanks,
