    No. You won't be able to claim the gst refund.

    "Tax invoices for purchases of $1000 or more must contain additional information, such as the name and address of the purchaser."

    Agreed, i did read about this clause. So at the TRS counter, will me providing his name, address (and perhaps australian bank account) work?

    I doubt it. Only if his name is on the ticket I think. But might depend on the day.
