I'm a little stuck and was hoping someone could help me please :)

Our business quoted a job a few months ago, this is an insurance claim. The insurance company accepted the quote, this is at 12.5% GST. The job took a little longer to complete than we had hoped and we have only just finished it. Now to invoice the job out that we are in the new GST 15%...the insurance company accepted the quote at 12.5%, how do I get around this? Do I have to charge out at 15%?

I look forward to any replys :)

Thank you

they won't care since they claim back the GST anyway.

take your original quote, take off GST at 12.5% to get your original Ex-GST price, then add 15% to get your new GST incl price and invoice for that.

e.g. if the original quote was $500 inc GST, then the ex-GSt amount would be $444.44

so you should invoice them for $444.44+GST @ 15% for a total of $511.11

You had up until the 11th october to invoice out at 12.5% , for any work that you did prior to the 1st october. The invoice however had to be post dated to the 30th septmber. What you really should have done is invoice them for the work done at the end of September. I think the legislation does cover you if the gst inclusive invoice is more that the accepted quotation, as long as it is no more than the rate of the gst rise.
