1. Goods and Services Tax Ruling GSTR 2004/5 deals with the application of paragraph 9-15(3)(c) of the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999 to payments made between government related entities that are specifically covered by an appropriation under an Australian law. The matters addressed in the Ruling are now dealt with in Goods and Services Tax Ruling GSTR 2006/11, which issues today.
2. GSTR 2006/11 has been prepared in response to feedback from Commonwealth, State and Territory government bodies that GSTR 2004/5 requires further clarification. GSTR 2006/11 provides clarification on what is meant by the term 'specifically covered by an appropriation'. GSTR 2006/11 also includes further discussion on what are 'relevant supporting documents'.
