A pre-RBT obligation is any contractual obligation that:
- exists under an agreement at or before 11.45am [by legal time in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT)] on 21 September 1999-the date of the Government's release of the Review of Business Taxation (RBT)
- requires you to make a prepayment in return for something to be done under the agreement
- cannot be avoided by your own actions.
The rules for deducting prepaid expenses incurred under a pre-RBT obligation are the same as those explained for taxpayers who are in the Simplified Tax System (STS), see chapter 5.
