3.c. Will all drugs and medicines be GST-free if there is a prescription?
Non-interpretative – straight application of the law.
Not all scripted drugs and medicinal preparations will be GST-free. Only drugs and medicines which meet the requirements so that they are GST-free under section 38-50 (refer to the explanatory section at the commencement of issue 3) and sold on the required form of script (that is, a NHS or a private script) will be GST-free.
