No. Haven't reached out yet, but should go there. I did not order bullbar, sidesteps hoping I could buy them from thedealer later without paying LCT.

Agreed, no dealer fitted accessories on initial order.
1)  You should be able to get them from the dealer or after market when they may be a wider choice
2)  Don't want to pay LCT and Stamp Duty on a bullbar etc

Also, if you are buying the car in a business name, it means that you can claim the full expense and GST back on them.
If you buy them with the IG at time of purchase, then you cannot claim any of the expense/GST back at all.

Welcome CD & Klaus.

FYI - I called Brighton Automotive 2 weeks ago.

The person responsible for the INEOS account is Frank, seems a nice guy and was informative.

He confirmed that they have an agent/principal relationship with INEOS.

However, at present they don't have access to the INEOS database of placed orders as yet although he expects this very soon.

So, for example, he didn't know my order number or any details of it.

cheers

Assuming you are in Australia you can claim GST back as a cost of business, dependent on how big your company is, quarterly or yearly. 
Your account will claim the LCT when he does your tax return the same way that he does FBT. Dependent on the amount of use claimed for business and personal use. They will also claim either mileage or depreciation again depending on business use. In theory accessories claimed afterwards can also be claimed as a percentage of use but can also be claimed as maintenance, consumables or costed against a job if you are creative.

Thanks Mark for the info on your call to Brighton Automotive. I will also reach out at some point for a chat.

Re: tax and note from DaveB. Am keen to understand where the LCT ruling with ATO is at, and what Ineos expect the timeline to be. Going to be unfortunate if unresolved at point contract issued for signature.

While tax maybe charged at the time that the contract is executed, my concern was that at the time of signing the contract you do not know the price of the vehicle you are signing up for.

So i asked re the progress of their application for a LCT exemption. The response i got re LCT was...

"We are still in negotiations with the ATO to get LCT removed. We are seeing that this will be done before customers are invited to sign their contracts."

Regards the application for Australian LCT exemption - based on the numbers from the Grenadier it would seem to satisfy the specific weight carrying test applied to determine the exemption from LCT, however, under the tax provisions the ATO can, in it's assessment as to whether LCT applies, take into account other aspects of the vehicle, (e.g. marketing information and sales presentations etc.).

if I had to choose, I reckon it's more likely than not a LCT exemption ruling will be granted. However, from personal experience in the tax space - I am assuming worst case and LCT applying to the Grenadier and hopefully will be pleasantly surprised.

Justin Hocevar, INEOS Automotive Head of APAC, has confirmed a few days ago that the LCT exemption application is still being assessed by the ATO but he hopes to receive a response by end of July/early August.

Hi all, just as an update i used the online chat function on the ineos website today to make some minor changes to my order. The agent was helpful, i provided very specific detail of what i wanted to delete/add (ie codes etc), and waited on the chat until i received an email with case reference number requesting i reply confirming the modifications requested (listed in their email). 

Specifically asked if i should expect to receive anything else with regard to the order changes, or will they just be what comes through with contract 6 weeks before build. Answer was changes have been requested and will be made and confirmed once contract is ready, and not to worry if do not hear anything…

While waiting on the chat for email etc i asked a couple of other questions. 
- Estimate delivery 2-3 months after build date
- Update on LCT - should have answer in July.

Cheers

According to a chat I had, LCT is applicable on 5 Seat variants as they are considered passenger vehicles. the Commercial vehicle are exempt from LCT.. shame because my Trialmaster config will jump $11,000…
