(b) if a determination under subsection (5) applies - the day provided under that determination.

14-250(5)  
The Commissioner may determine, by legislative instrument, circumstances in which amounts under this section are to be paid on or before the day provided under the determination. The determination may provide for amounts to be paid in instalments. The amount to be paid

(b) otherwise - 1/11 of the amount provided under subsection (7).

14-250(7)  
For the purposes of paragraphs (6)(a) and (b), the amount is:


(a) if the contract for the *supply specifies an amount (the contract price ) that is the *price for the supply, subject to normal adjustments that apply on completion of transactions of that kind - that contract price; or


(b) otherwise - the *price for the supply.

14-250(8)  
The Minister may, by legislative instrument, determine a percentage exceeding 7%, but not exceeding 9%, for the purposes of subparagraph (6)(a)(i).

the amount to be paid to the Commissioner is an amount equal to 10% of the *GST exclusive market value (within the meaning of the *GST Act) of the supply.

14-250(10)  
Despite subsections (6) and (9), if:


(a) the *supply does not consist solely of one or more supplies to which subsection (2) applies; and


(b) it is practicable to ascertain, at the time any of the *consideration for the supply (other than consideration provided as a deposit) is first provided, the amount (the reduced amount ) of the amount provided under subsection (6) or (9) that relates to supplies to which subsection (2) applies;

the amount provided under subsection (6) or (9) is taken (other than for the purposes of this subsection) to be the reduced amount.

Multiple recipients

14-250(11)  
If there is more than one recipient (within the meaning of the *GST Act) of the *supply (the original supply ):


(a) treat each recipient as being the recipient of a separate supply; and

Treat recipients who are joint tenants as a single recipient for the purposes of this subsection.
