Circumstances where the requirement for a tax invoice does not apply

3. The circumstance set out in the following paragraphs is the circumstance of a kind in which the requirement for a tax invoice under subsection 29-10(3) of the Act does not apply.

4. A member of Retail Decisions Pty Ltd will not be required to hold a tax invoice for a creditable acquisition purchased with the Retail Decisions Pty Ltd corporate card in order to attribute an input tax credit on the acquisition to a tax period provided that at the time the member gives its GST return/Business Activity Statement ('BAS') for the tax period to the Commissioner:

(a)
The member holds a corporate card statement produced by Retail Decisions Pty Ltd that includes the following details:

(i)
The member's name;
(ii)
The name(s) of the person(s) who uses the corporate card to purchase the creditable acquisition or, in the case of fuel cards, the vehicle identifier;
(iii)
The member's Australian Business Number ('ABN') or address;
(iv)
For each acquisition for which the member may claim an input tax credit the statement has:

·
the date the member purchased the acquisition;
·
the supplier's name;
·
the supplier's ABN;
·
the supplier's Branch Registration Number (where applicable);
·
a brief description of the acquisition or, if that is not available, a description of the supplier's industry;
·
the amount of GST paid; and
·
the total amount paid; and

(b)
The member has an effectively regulated corporate policy for making adjustments for expenditure on the corporate card that is of a private or domestic nature and were not made in connection with carrying on the member's enterprise;
(c)
The member has supplementary documentation supporting each acquisition on the statement that has a private or domestic component and the documentary evidence clearly identifies the creditable and non-creditable components of the acquisition;
(d)
Retail Decisions Pty Ltd meets the conditions set out in paragraph 5 and 6 below.

5. Retail Decisions Pty Ltd must provide the date each supply on the statement was purchased.

6. Where all the information on the statement is not provided by the merchant to Retail Decisions Pty Ltd, the latter may, until 30 June 2006, separately obtain the supplier's ABN and GST registration status and then calculate the amount of GST on the supply provided Retail Decisions Pty Ltd:

(a)
has obtained a signed statement from each merchant that states:

(i)
the merchant's ABN and Branch Registration Number (where applicable);
(ii)
whether or not the merchant is registered for GST;
(iii)
the type of supply or supplies (i.e., taxable, GST-free and/or input taxed) the merchant provides;
(iv)
where the merchant only provides taxable supplies, whether or not GST is calculated at 1/11th of the price for all the taxable supplies the merchant provides; and
(v)
provides Retail Decisions Pty Ltd with an undertaking that it will be notified -

·
when they cease to be registered for GST; or
·
when they cease to make only taxable supplies where the GST is calculated at 1/11th of the price;

(b)
retains the signed statement for at least 5 years after the merchant ceases their association with Retail Decisions Pty Ltd;
(c)
clearly identify each supply in the statement that may be a GST-free, input taxed or mixed supply;
(d)
clearly identify each supply where GST may not be 1/11th of the price; and
(e)
where a supply has been identified as being a supply that may be a GST-free, input taxed or a supply where GST may not be 1/11th of the price, advise the entity to obtain a tax invoice before attributing an input tax credit to a tax period; and
(f)
where Retail Decisions Pty Ltd has obtained information that the merchant is not registered, or ceases to be registered for GST, Retail Decisions Pty Ltd must not calculate an amount of GST for supplies from that merchant. Instead, Retail Decisions Pty Ltd must state that the amount of GST included in the price of the supply is $nil.

Situations where a tax invoice is still required

7. The member will still need to obtain a tax invoice before attributing input tax credits to a tax period for a supply on the corporate card statement where:

(a)
the corporate card statement indicates that the supply may be a mixed supply or a taxable supply where GST is not 1/11th of the price; or
(b)
where there is an error on the corporate card statement in relation to the supply.
