If, after the making in respect of the taxpayer of an assessment for the purposes of which subsection (1) has been applied, the consideration or part of the consideration is received by the taxpayer, that subsection shall be deemed not to have been applicable, or not to have been applicable in relation to that part of the consideration, as the case may be.160ZF(4) [Amendment of assessments]
Nothing in section 170 prevents the amendment of an assessment for the purpose of giving effect to this section.
