  • Are the AUSTCS seminars mainly business events?
    No! AUSTCS is open to all members of the Australian community. We hope the events we host will be filled with a good cross-section of enthusiasts, tea businesses and members of the community who have a connection or passion to see the development of a recognisable Australian tea culture. Without tea enthusiasts, there is no tea community.
  • Can I pay for my tickets by credit card?
    Yes! AUSTCS has opted to use PayPal as a secure online payment service provider. This does not mean you need to have or open a PayPal account. If you wish to pay by credit card simply follow the PayPal system.

  • Is the seminar tax deductible?
    If you run a business with strong ties to tea, whether as an educator, wholesaler, retailer, hospitality business, or consultancy, you are more than likely eligible for a tax deduction for all expenses related to AUSTCS, including seminar ticket, accommodation, and travel expenses. When you paid for your ticket you will have received a Paypal invoice with our ABN details on it, which you can use to make your claim. If you are unable to locate this invoice we would be more than happy to reissue it. Please take a look at the Australian Tax Office website and consult your accountant for details of eligible tax deductions.
  • Will the Members annual general meeting (AGM) be held at the Seminar?
    No. AUSTCS now holds the AGM online, making it easier for those members who are not attending a seminar to still be involved and vote. All AUSTCS members will receive an email notification of the AGM, its time, date and private link for access. This email will be constitute your invitation.
