Being in Retail can be tough!

The pressure on retailing has never been as intense as in the past five years. The challenges have been not only the global financial crisis, which has meant people are paying off debt rather than spending, but also online retailing. People can’t be blamed for buying online when prices can be significantly cheaper. Hallenstein Glasson, the listed retailer shares have dropped, after it issued a statement that its profit is forecast to drop 39% following a poor Christmas period. The company has a considerable presence on the web and it is understood that a considerable amount of its sales come from Australia.

Most people I know buy things on the web, and if you buy from overseas there is generally no 15% GST. Personally both Janice and I read books on our Kindle’s and it is so easy to download from They have
such a great marketing machine of following up – they make it really easy to take your money!

The Minister of Finance recently estimated that the lost GST is somewhere around $200 million per year.
All the big retailers offer 24/7 shopping online.
