    The company released a trading update to the market this morning which showed revenue from "Global Brands" slumped by 27% from a year earlier.

    Kogan attributed the decline to the federal government's recent changes to GST laws. Since July 1 2018, GST has been applied on all overseas online purchases, rather than just transactions above $1,000.

    "Initially, this saw some competitors exit the market and the company’s July Revenue grew 33% year-on-year," Kogan said.

    However, "more recently, widespread avoidance of GST has become apparent". The company said it is "unable to determine whether the recent widespread avoidance of GST will be temporary".

    In addition to foreign competitor websites, Kogan said the recent weakness in the Australian dollar was putting pressure on margins.

    Elsewhere in the update, Kogan said it had achieved annual customer growth of 41.6% in the September quarter.
