On 15 March 2012, the ATO released draft Practice Statement PS LA 3541 entitled "GST classification of food and beverage items".
The draft practice statement sets out:

  • the arrangement the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has with GS1 Australia to ensure food and beverage items shown on GS1net are correctly classified for GST purposes
  • the administrative approach the ATO will take for past years or periods where manufacturers and other suppliers have relied on the ATO confirmed GST classification on GS1net, and
  • the procedures for tax officers to follow and matters to take into account when considering a change in the GST treatment of a food or beverage item listed on GS1net. 

Comments are due by 13 April 2012.

When finalised, the date of effect of the Practice Statement is 1 July 2010.
