I'm guessing that the TT fee came through in your AUD bank account. i'm assuming this is an Australian bank account, not just an AUD account in an o/s bank. If so then the bank's fee will include the normal 10% GST and use the NCG tax code. that's what I do. Hope that helps.

Why don't you ask the person to whom you are paying the fee? There's no way of telling if it includes GST unless they tell you. 

Happy to help

Thanks Lee, you are right. it is GST inclusive.

And Thanks Kevin, I have called ANZ bank and they have advise me it has GST in it.

I thought it was a simple Yes or No question, but I was  transferred  5 times before they could find  someone  with aussie accent can answer the question.

Anyway, Thanks again. guys,
