Subject to subsection (3), the Commissioner may transfer the expenditure that the person failed to transfer.

45C(3)  
The transfer must:

45C(4)  
For the purposes of this Act (other than this section), the transfer is taken to be a transfer by the person under section 45A or 45B , as the case requires.

The transfer may not be revoked or varied except:


(a) under subsection (6); or


(b) pursuant to a decision of the Tribunal or an order of a court; or

If:


(a) after the transfer, information becomes available to the Commissioner that was not available at the time of the transfer; and


(b) the Commissioner would not have transferred the expenditure in the same way, or at all, if he or she had been aware of the information at the time of transferring the expenditure;

the Commissioner may, in writing, revoke the transfer and, if appropriate, make another transfer of expenditure under this section.

45C(7)  
If the Commissioner revokes the transfer, then, for the purposes of this Act, the transfer is taken never to have been made.
