have questions ?

Got some questions about the STC process we have published some of our frequently asked questions and answers below

Retailers providing a “point of sale discount” for the value of the STCs to a customer who is not registered for GST should not add GST to the discount as showing on the customers invoice.

Payment from STC Trade to the retailer also will not include GST.

Retailers providing a sale to a customer registered for GST and who are providing the quote with a “point of sale discount” for the STC value are required to invoice the customer for the full amount of the cost of the solar system without a discount for STCs. The customer who becomes the owner of the solar system has the right to assign the STCs and therefore the tax invoice to STC Trade including GST for the right to assign STCs must be from the owner of the solar system and not from the retailer.

The payment of this invoice for the right to create STCs from STC Trade can then be made to the retailer instead of the owner if the owner has agreed to take the discount off the cost of the full system as invoiced by the retailer to the owner.

To allow for the difference between the customer quoted STC price and the agent quoted STC price the retailer also needs to send a tax invoice to the agent for the difference between the STC value as agreed with the agent and the STC value as agreed with their customer.

Please contact STC Trade if you require further clarification.

If you want to fix the STC price for installs you have coming up you can secure a price for up to 12 months in advance. You don’t need to lock in all of your STCs, you just need to nominate the number of STCs and for which months you require a STC price to be quoted. For more information and price please contact STC Trade.
