Council for Estate Agencies (CEA): Impose GST as non-negotiable and compulsory payable by all consumers

I have a first hand experience of this being a property agent myself. A foreign tenant refused to pay GST and my company told me that I had to absorb it. CEA should uphold the professionalism of property agents by making it mandatory for landlords/tenants/buyers/sellers to foot the GST and not push it to the agents to absorb. In my opinion, the CEA forms should state "GST is payable upon the commission", without option.
