I'm not sure if this is in scope for CBSubs but here we go....

We are an Australian based company so we are obliged to collect 10% GST from Australian based customers only.

Is this something that can be achieved using CBSubs and if so how. I believe this is similar to how VAT works in Europe.

If it is not possible through CBSubs do you have any suggestions about how to go about this(ie. we also use PAP so perhaps I should investigate it's VAT features)

CBSubs 1.0.x does not yet handle per-country VAT inside CBSUbs, but in conjunction with Paypal it does handle per country-VAT.

You need to configure the country VAT in paypal, and CBSubs will receive the VAT back from Paypal, accept it, and also show it on the invoice.

In addition, Paypal is in a better position than us to know and verify the country of the purchaser ;-)

I tried it in paypal sandbox, inserted the VAT-ID for selleraccount, but the invoices are still labeled with "tax free".
What else must be configured in paypals sandbox?

You need to go to Paypal->Profile->Tax Settings

Then add country and tax rate for that country.

Once that is done, if the customer is from that country, the tax rate will be added and tax shown on the invoice as well, after the payment.
