A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999

Chapter 4 - The special rules  

Part 4-1 - Special rules mainly about particular ways entities are organised  


The special rules in this Part mainly modify the operation of Part 2-2 so far as that Part deals with liability for GST and entitlement to input tax credits, but the special rules also affect other aspects of Part 2-2 and the other Parts of Chapter 2 .

Division 58 - Representatives of incapacitated entities  

58-40   Effect on attribution rules of not accounting on a cash basis  


(a) a *representative of an *incapacitated entity does not *account on a cash basis ; and

(b) because of section 58-10 , all or part of the amount of GST payable on a *taxable supply is payable by the representative, or the representative is entitled to all or part of the input tax credit for a *creditable acquisition ;

then, to the extent that, but for this section, the GST or input tax credit would be attributable to a tax period that ended before the representative became a representative of the incapacitated entity, the GST or input tax credit is instead attributable to the first tax period applying to the representative in that capacity.

This section has effect despite sections 29-5 and 29-10 (which are about attribution of GST on taxable supplies and of input tax credits for creditable acquisitions).
