The application of GST to the health professions has its own issues to be negotiated. This article examines the health-related concessions in the GST Act, what they might mean, and what they have been interpreted to mean by the Commissioner and the Health Industry Partnership. GST aspects of service entities and GST grouping are also reviewed in passing.
