Taxation and grants
Grants paid by the Australia Council may be considered part of your income in a financial year and may be subject to tax. You must determine your own taxation liabilities. We suggest you consult your financial adviser or contact the Australian Taxation Office on 13 28 66. If you are GST-registered when you receive an Australia Council grant, the Australia Council will pay the grant amount plus GST (where required). The budget given in your application should be exclusive of GST. If you are not GST registered, the budget should include GST as this is part of the cost of the project.
