Summary of issues raised and responses

Issue No. Issue raised ATO Response/Action taken
1 Retrospective application date of the Ruling.
The draft Ruling is intended to apply from 1 July 2010. On the basis that adjustment notes would have been issued during the period since 1 July 2010, we consider that having a retrospective application date may potentially cause administrative issues for taxpayers and therefore request a prospective application date of 1 July 2013. This will allow taxpayers to have fair warning of any changes to the ATO's administration of adjustment notes stemming from this draft Ruling.
Agreed. The date of effect for the final Ruling is the date of publication.
GSTR 2000/1 is withdrawn on the same date as the new ruling is published. Therefore, taxpayers can still rely on GSTR 2000/1 up to the date of its withdrawal.
